Another perspective on the psychology of groups is offered by Oliver Brachfeld in his book Inferiority Feelings in the Individual and the Group. Brachfeld traces the history of "the feeling of inferiority" through Janet, Ganz, Kunkel and Adler, then attempts to draw conclusions about progressively larger arenas--the individual, family, economic groups, racial groups, and national groups. Although he frequently refers to Adler, Brachfeld's ideas sometimes stretch way beyond Adler's assumptions into areas of questionable validity. An unfortunate deterrent to accessing this book is the price of the reprint ($169.00). The hefty prices by Routledge for mere reprints, make the newly translated volumes of The Collected Clinical Works of Works of Alfred Adler look like a bargain.
