Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This laudatory biography creates an interesting counterpoint to Jung's own autobiography ( Memories, Dreams, Reflections, 1963) by placing the inner man of the autobiography in social and historical context. Relying on Jung's quotations, letters, and stories, as well as on his friends and other biographers, Wehr gives us a complex portrait of the man who founded analytical psychology. Even those unfamiliar Jung's work will find the book satisfying and will probably want to read more by and about him. The book appears well documented, though footnotes were not seen. Recommended for larger public and most academic libraries. Lucy Patrick, Florida State Univ. Lib., Tallahassee
