Psychoanalytic Sociology presents a careful selection of the most important seminal articles on the inter-relations which have developed between psychoanalysis and sociology.

A new introductory chapter, prepared by the editors, reviews the most recent developments clarifying the different influences of psychoanalytical writers such as Freud, Klein and Lacan on sociological thought. A broad definition of 'the sociological' has been adopted, corresponding to the topics and ideas being explored.

This comprehensive and authoritative two volume set is an essential reference guide to both the origins and the most recent developments in psychoanalytic sociology.
