Overview -

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.
