Overview

This book studies one of Freud's famous, but unhappiest cases 'Dora'--an adolescent girl from the upper-middle-class Viennese-Jewish family that he treated in his early years as a psychoanalyst. Hannah Decker does a wonderful job of locating both Freud and Dora in their historical context and of reconstructing attitudes about Jews, women, and doctors in turn-of-the-century Vienna.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Decker explores the psychoanalytic encounter between Freud and the 18-year-old girl he called "Dora" against the backdrop of fin-de- siecle Vienna and against the backdrop, too, of the virulent anti- semitism that characterized the period and pervaded the lives of Viennese Jews.
