This new edition of the biography of pioneering child analyst Anna Freud includes, among other features, a major retrospective introduction by the author.

Elisabeth Young-Bruehl is a faculty member at the Columbia Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research and a practising psychoanalyst in Manhattan.

"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 illuninates 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 "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"
