KIRKUS REVIEW

This lucid, accessible exposition of Freudian theory is presented by the author of Fight Against Fears and other books on psychoanalysis. Miss Freeman is a convinced exponent, and at times her writing has taken on a proselytizing tone, but here she maintains for the most part a sympathetic and not over-stated approach. She reviews the beginnings of Freudian theory, takes up its twelve fundamental points, then proceeds to explain the nature of the Oedipal situation, the role of the sexual and aggressive drives in our lives, the telltale signs of conflict and unresolved attachments of the past. A good psychoanalytic primer.
