Juliet Mitchell and the Lateral Axis explores the implications of Mitchell's ground-breaking theory regarding the effect of siblings on psychic development, politics and culture. Chapters by leading scholars address themes at the center of public and academic discussion: equality, violence, collective movements, subjectivity, sexuality and power. Using the latest innovations in psychoanalytical theory, scholars will deepen their understanding of the coincidence of violence and sexuality inmany of the social issues which challenge us today.
