Love, hate, sexualexperience, the shaping of gender roles, suffering and survivalstrategies are pursued as the sibling exchange. A work to provokethought and discussion packed with real life and literaryevidence."

"In 1974, Mitchell’s Psychoanalysis and Feminismoffered a major challenge to a resistant Anglo-Saxon feminism withher compelling case that psychoanalysis, most often seen byfeminists to be part of the problem, was rather a powerful resourcefor feminist explanation and understanding of male domination,female oppression. Almost thirty years on, with Siblings,she has made a second, perhaps even more radical intervention. Heranalysis of the lateral relations of siblings and peers promises totransform many of the recurrent issues and debates of contemporaryfeminism. ... This new book offers richly stimulating resourcesthat should fuel feminist scholarship and debate for manyyears."
