History of the Breast by Marilyn Yalom

Book Description

This engrossing work of original research is the first to consider how the breast has been perceived in the Western world from ancient days to the present - how it has been understood in religion, in the arts, in medicine, in psychoanalysis (by Freud as erotically secondary to the phallus, then by Melanie Klein as the original object of desire).
