Editorial Reviews

"A Jew living and working in Vienna during the period of Hitler's ascent to power, Freud had to have thought a lot about race and racism. But did he think them through psychoanalytically, and how responsive to the issue of race is the discourse he founded? In this deservedly big-and, happily, excellent-book, a range of voices, both celebrated and new, spells out with precision the resources psychoanalysis puts at our disposal and the ways it sometimes fails us with regard to questions of race. Individually and en bloc, these rich and subtle essays will orient the debate for a long time to come."
