"An excellent book, sophisticated in its judgments, and with a candor that does justice to [Quinn's] courageous subject." — Phyllis Grosskurth, The New York Review of Books

"A richly contexted, thoroughly informed, and admirably forthright account of Horney's development and contribution." — Justin Kaplan

"Excellent, sympathetic but not adulatory, clear about the theories and factions... rich in anecdotes." — Rosemary Dinnage, The New York Times Book Review

"The whole book is wonderfully balanced. A terrific achievement." — Anton O. Kris, Boston Psychoanalytic Institute

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Here, Quinn examines gifted clinician/writer Karen Horney, a psychoanalytic ``renegade'' eventually cast out of the New York Psychoanalytic Institute when she ran afoul of the new orthodoxy. The author sensitively traces the enormous loss both to the establishment and also to Horney and her new group, which became autocratic in its own right. Of all the recent accounts of psychoanalytic politics, this is one of the best. Although clearly partial to Horney, it is relatively even-handed in its presentation of the failings and strengths on both sides, and examines issues in depth. Of great interest to both scholar and layperson. Paul Hymowitz, Cornell Medical Coll., New York
