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.  She lives in New York and Toronto.

"This edition offers a new introductory essay on the 'Freud Wars' of the 1990s, in order to situate the new attention paid to the work of Anna Freud, who survived the aforementioned wars just fine. . . . This book is still, after 20 years, the gold standard of biographies of thinkers in the psychoanalytic tradition and thus continues to merit a place among the best. . . . Libraries that do not own the previous edition or wish to have the most up-to-date edition will want this volume, which is required reading for those interested in the history of psychological thought and practices and in mental health.
