From Library Journal:

Here, Quinn examines gifted clinician/writer Karen Horney, a psychoanalytic "renegade" eventually cast out of the New York Psychoanalytic Institute when she ran afoul of the new orthodoxy. The author sensitively traces the enormous loss both to the establishment and also to Horney and her new group, which became autocratic in its own right. Of all the recent accounts of psychoanalytic politics, this is one of the best. Although clearly partial to Horney, it is relatively even-handed in its presentation of the failings and strengths on both sides, and examines issues in depth. Of great interest to both scholar and layperson. Paul Hymowitz, Cornell Medical Coll., New York

From Publishers Weekly:

"This intimate portrait of the feminist psychoanalyst who shook the Freudian establishment links the inner woman to the public figure, rebel and maverick," declared PW , calling the book "the fullest, most insightful biography of Horney to date." Photos.
