This book, featuring contributions from some of the world's most eminent Freud scholars, marks the fiftieth anniversary of Freud's arrival in London as an exile from occupied Austria-an event regarded by many as a decisive turning point in modern cultural history [or for psych. media: in the history of psychoanalysis]. Based on a broad range of documentation, and using illustrations from the Freud archives (many of them reproduced here for the first time), this volume demonstrates how Freud's exile stimulated the growth of psychoanalysis in the English-speaking world and provides an important reassessment of Freud's contribution to twentieth-century thought.
