9780300140231: Anna Freud: A Biography, Second Edition

This edition of Elisabeth Young-Bruehl's definitive biography of pioneering child analyst Anna Freud includes―among other new features―a major retrospective introduction by the author.

 

Praise for the Second Edition:

“Young-Bruehl’s description of one of the most complex but brilliant lights in psychoanalytic history has stood as a beacon to students of psychoanalytic history.  It is the best most carefully crafted biography of any psychoanalyst and it illuminates the entire tradition with a clarity that only the exploration of the life of the daughter of the founder of the movement could possibly provide.  It is a beautifully written insightful and remarkably edifying piece of work.  The best has just got better.”-- Peter Fonagy, Freud Memorial Professor of Psychoanalysis, University College London

 

Praise for the First Edition:

“A gem of biographical writing. . . .”―Ron Grossman, Chicago Tribune

 

“Lucid, erudite, briskly authoritative, Elisabeth Young-Bruehl . . . has given us the insight into character that makes biography an art.”―James Atlas

 

Elisabeth Young-Bruehl is a faculty member at the Columbia Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research and a practicing psychoanalyst in Manhattan.  She lives in New York and Toronto.
