Description - Correspondence by Sigmund Freud

This book is the first publication of the complete correspondence
of Sigmund Freud with his daughter Anna. The correspondence ranges
over personal and family matters - social events, family holidays,
births and deaths, health issues, war experiences, etc. - as well
as professional matters, including the progress of Sigmund
Freud?s and Anna Freud?s scientific works, their views
on students and colleagues, and the international dissemination and
publication of psychoanalytical writings.

The letters provide valuable insight into the work and family life
of the founder of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud, including the
changes in his perception of women that were triggered by his
relation with his daughter. They also shed fresh light on the
development of Anna?s life and career - the early years in
England, the period of her analysis with her own father and the
last phase of her father?s illness and death, when Anna
became the torch-bearer and protector of her father?s works,
and eventually became the leading figure in the International
Psychoanalytic Association.

Richly annotated with editorial comments, this unique volume of
correspondence between Sigmund and Anna Freud is an invaluable
source of historical documentation about the formation and
development of psychoanalysis and the early decades of the
psychoanalytic movement.
