- DescriptionThis 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.
