Reviews and Endorsements

Using Freud's theoretical writings to illuminate his relations with women - from his wife, Martha, to one of his closest female friends, Lou Andreas-Salome, this book explores how these relations informed the development of his ideas and traces the legacy of these ideas in contemporary feminism.
Lisa Appignanesi and John Forrester tell a fascinating and complicated story with great flair: Freud's Women is as scholarly as it is readable, moving between biography and theory to chart the intellectual history of psychoanalysis.
