Overview

“In lucid, uncluttered prose, Janet Sayers presents the reader with a fresh viewing of the lives and times of four extraordinary women pioneer analysts. Sayers recounts how they were able to shift the theoretic balance of the day to include the creative evolution of their thinking. This book is of value not only for the novice, but certainly for many others who can learn from these excellent, abridged biographies.” —Dr. Helene DeRosis
Once patriarchal and phallocentric, psychoanalysis has now become strongly mother-centered. This book tells the story of that revolution through biographical portraits of four pioneering figures in the early institutions of psychoanalysis: Helene Deutsch, Karen Horney, Anna Freud, and Melanie Klein.

This is a nonfiction book highlighting the contributions of women to psychoanalysis. Everyone knows about Freud and penis-envy, but this is the place to learn about Karen Horney's response and the term "womb-envy." Anyone who is interested in the history of psychoanalytic thinking beyond Freud would enjoy this book.
