The Politics of Psychoanalysis
An Introduction to Freudian and Post-Freudian TheoryBook - 1987
Since its first publication in 1987, The Politics of Psychoanalysis has been widely recognized as one of the best introductions to psychoanalytic theory and its relevance to social relations and politics. For this second edition, the book has been thoroughly revised to take into account the many developments in critical psychoanalysis which have occurred during the past decade. The author has provided updated accounts of the theories covered in the first edition, plus new material on contemporary feminist psychoanalytic work and on the engagement of psychoanalysis with postmodernism. The result is a book that combines a lucid introduction to psychoanalytic theory with a critical examination of the value of psychoanalysis for therapeutic and social practice.
