In this excellent new book, David Morgan makes a compelling case for why psychoanalytic thinking remains particularly important for understanding the pertinent issues that dominate social and political discourse. The discussion of issues, such as Brexit and the 2016 US Presidential election, have been characteristically chaotic. Yet Morgan’s contribution represents a rigorous academic engagement with traditional modes of psychoanalysis (and particularly Freud) in a contemporary political setting. It is a must read for those interested in psychoanalysis and politics.
