The papers collected together in this volume laid the groundwork for contemporary psychoanalytic women's studies and gender theory. Many of the issues are still relevant today, among them mothering, passivity, hysteria, masochism, object choice, and the complex relationship between gender and biology. Included are papers by, amongst others, Abraham, Deutsch, Horney, and Klein.
