'This book emerged much as the unfolding of the Sandplay process...In the beginning, our initial interest was in writing an introductory handbook on Sandplay. In preparation and research for that work, we were impressed to find the richness of Sandplay's lengthy heritage expanding over approximately sixty-five years. As we read these historical works, we were struck by their relevance for contemporary therapists.'
