Secret Ring: Freud's Inner Circle and the Politics of Psychoanalysisby Phyllis Grosskurth
In 1912 Vienna, Freud stood at the center of a group which included Sandor Ferenczi, Otto Rank, Hanns Sachs, Karl Abraham, & Ernest Jones. They were gathered to form what Freud called his Secret Committee, to monitor the activities of the despised Carl Jung (whom Freud had recently named his successor), & to make certain that Freud alone continued to dominate psychoanalysis. Tells how Freud exerted his control over these founding men of psychoanalysis, how they fought with one another & competed for his favor, & how the foundations of international psychoanalysis were laid down.
