'The psychoanalytic movement has taken many forms in its history: bohemian sub-culture, essential auxiliary to the armed forces, the perpetually intriguing ingredient of cocktail party and brasserie conversation, godfather to therapy culture. But one of its permanent foundations has been the International Psychoanalytical Association, now celebrating its centenary. Psychoanalysis has had its ups and downs in some of the places wherein it was once best established - in Vienna, in the USA, and in Paris - but its continuing vitality, perhaps surprising and shocking to some, will be evident from this encyclopedic survey of its complicated history and its geographical sprawl. Any reader, no matter how well psychoanalysed, no matter how cosmopolitan, no matter how ""international"", will learn much from this volume.'- Professor John Forrester, Head of Department of History and Philosophy of Science University of Cambridge; Editor of Psychoanalysis and History
