Reviews and Endorsements

'Motherhood and Sexuality' chronicles Marie Langer's thinking in the middle of her productive life. Its concerns predate by two decades many of the debates feminist psychoanalytic theorists and clinicians have been engaged in since the middle '70s and provide crucial material to further that inquiry. Nancy Hollander's work in translating this book and setting the scene to introduce North American readers to Marie Langer is invaluable'
- Susie Orbach, author of 'Hunger Strike: The Anorectic's Struggle as a Metaphor for our Age'.

'Because if its clinical richness and bold integration of Kleinian thinking with a wide range of early psychoanalytic theorizing about women's sexuality and motherhood, Langer's work remains a classic text. Nancy Carol Hollander's Introduction adds a fascinating account of this pioneering psychoanalyst who championed the right of women of all classes to work and love'
- Jessica Benjamin, author of 'The Bonds of Love'.
