"Love in Vienna is a meticulously researched monograph and Barry Gales is to be congratulated on the depth and detail of his investigation." - The Victorian "In the history of psychoanalysis, Freud's alleged sexual relationship with his sister-in-law Minna Bernays and Jung's alleged affair with Sabina Spielrein have become sensations, driving debates among defenders and doubters and spawning a considerable literature. Barry G. Gale's [Love in Vienna is] . . . a recent contribution to this genre. . . . The book is a scholarly discussion of the literature about the 'affair' written since [Ernest] Jones (1953) first mentioned rumors about it. Gale [is] convinced (1) that Minna slept with Freud and confessed this to Jung; (2) that Jung told the truth [about the affair] to [Dr. John] Billlinsky; and (3) that Billinsky's reportage [he interviewed Jung in 1957] was faithful." - Dr. Henry Z. Lothane, Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association "Gale gives his readers a rare insight into the relationship that Freud appeared to treasure most: his ambiguous relationship with [Minna] Bernays." - Metropole "I enthusiastically commend this book to anyone interested in this intriguing subject-the origins of the rumor, the rumor's reception, the rebuttals and counterrebuttals that ensued over the following decades, and so on." - PsycCRITIQUES "I recommend this book very highly to anyone interested in the subject . . . . [I]t is the most thorough, thoughtful, and incisive summary of this intriguing debate thus far and will likely remain the single most important book on this subject for many years to come." - Dr. Daniel Burston, Journal of the History of the Behavioral Sciences
