Reviews

Brilliant... A magisterial study that moves beyond the heated disputes of past decades to gives us a detailed, deeply reflective history... The book will serve historians of the field, as well as undaunted readers, for many years to come * Financial Times *
Gripping... At last: a history of psychoanalysis without partisanship or rancour. This neutral and thorough account of one of the most controversial intellectual movements to sweet Europe and the world ... is greatly needed today ... An impressive achievement * Literary Review *
Rich and even-handed enough for partisans on both sides of the divide to find ammunition for their cause... Makari's lucid and thoroughly researched book is an indispensable guide * Times Literary Supplement *
This history of psychoanalysis aims to display, as they bubble up, ideas that are hardly ideas any longer, more part of our psychic landscape. George Makari ... lets us in on the stage where what has since hardened into dogma is still in flux, showing us how Freud took on and discarded theories, tinkering and patching. Similarly fluid, as Makari shows, is the ownership of idea * Guardian *
Not only of high scientific value but also enjoyable to read... Makari has succeeded in writing an important, even brilliant book... An immensely joyful experience * International Journal of Psychoanalysis *
Freud's context is more fully elaborated by Makari than ever before. I admire in particular the sanity and balance of this work, since it shows that Freud's value transcends his scientism -- Harold Bloom
George Makari has written nothing less than a history of the modern mind... an astounding breadth of knowledge and an unprecedented gift for synthesis -- Paul Auster
