Description: This volume fills the gap in books dedicated to the ideas of ground-breaking theorist Juliet Mitchell. Essays from internationally renowned scholars address themes that cross-cut her oeuvre: equality, violence, collective movements, subjectivity, sexuality and power. Mitchell herself contributes a chapter and an afterward.

Review: "This book provides a very good overview of Juliet Mitchell's work and explores it in depth. In a remarkably clear and precise way, the authors introduce crucial concepts she developed, contextualise them and explore their theoretical and clinical implications. This book is a marvellous tool which will help the complete beginner but also the experienced academic to understand how much Juliet Mitchell's work opens up a new horizon in psychoanalytic theory." - Lionel Bailly, Senior Lecturer in Psychoanalysis, University College London, UK
