Reviews

Part of the new "Routledge Critical Thinkers" series, this is a clear, concise guide for the nonspecialist to a major thinker in humanities and literary studies. Thurschwell (English, University Coll., London) writes with confidence, balance, and enthusiasm about an important and difficult subject that may no longer hold sway in American psychiatry and psychology but survives in the humanities and needs to be understood as a major ideological force despite its flaws. The book contains chapters on early theories, interpretation, sexuality, case histories, maps of the mind, society and religion, and psychoanalysis's aftermath, including feminist criticism and a remarkable summary of Jacques Lacan's role. The reader (college level, at least) can form independent judgments and will be equipped to address Freud's texts directly. Although weak on Freud's biography, this book, supplemented with Louis Breger's Freud: Darkness in the Midst of Vision (LJ 9/1/00), makes the best short introduction to Freud and belongs in all libraries.ÄE.
