This edition of Elisabeth Young-Bruehl's definitive biography of pioneering child analyst Anna Freud includes—among other new features—a major retrospective introduction by the author.

Praise for the Second Edition:

“Young-Bruehl’s description of one of the most complex but brilliant lights in psychoanalytic history has stood as a beacon to students of psychoanalytic history. It is the best most carefully crafted biography of any psychoanalyst and it illuminates the entire tradition with a clarity that only the exploration of the life of the daughter of the founder of the movement could possibly provide. It is a beautifully written insightful and remarkably edifying piece of work. The best has just got better.”-- Peter Fonagy, Freud Memorial Professor of Psychoanalysis, University College London

Praise for the First Edition:
“A gem of biographical writing. . . .”—Ron Grossman, Chicago Tribune

“Lucid, erudite, briskly authoritative, Elisabeth Young-Bruehl . . . has given us the insight into character that makes biography an art.”—James Atlas

About the Author:

Elisabeth Young-Bruehl (1946-2011) was a faculty member at the Columbia Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research and a practicing psychoanalyst in Manhattan. She lived in New York and Toronto.
