About this book

This collection of essays approaches the history of psychoanalysis from a transnational perspective, emphasizing the flows of people, ideas and institution across cultures and nations, and examining the factors that contributed to turn psychoanalysis into one of the systems of beliefs that defined the Twentieth century.
