Feminism and Its Discontents: A Century of Struggle with Psychoanalysis

Synopsis

In a lively, often surprising history, Buhle reveals that the 20th century's two great theories of liberation--psychoanalysis and feminism--actually have a great deal to tell each other. Ambitious and highly engaging, "Feminism and Its Discontents" brings together far-flung intellectual tendencies rarely seen in intimate relation to each other--and shows readers a new way of seeing both.
