BREGER, LOUIS.
Freud: Darkness in the Midst of Vision.
New York: John Wiley & Sons 2000. 1st Printing. Hardbound 8vo (about 9.5 inches tall) 472 pages. Background and sources, notes, bibliography, index. Description: Includes a few black and white illustrations. The publisher's blurb reads: ''Breger's insightful portrait reveals Freud as a man of striking contradictions, someone whose startling originality coexisted with a rigid adherence to dogma, a person who spent his life immersed in the most intimate details of other people's lives yet remained wrapped up in himself and curiously remote from others, a man of deep insights who was also blind to the effect he had on other people. In demythologizing Freud, Breger penetrate to the darkness behind one of the brightest minds of the twentieth century.'' BINDING/CONDITION: black boards; a Very Good+ book, with a Fine dust jacket; publisher's price on the jacket flap is intact. ISBN: 0471316288

CREWS, FREDERICK.
Skeptical Engagements.
New York: Oxford University Press 1986. 1st Printing. Hardbound 8vo (8.5 inches tall) 244 pages. Index. Description: The publisher's blurb reads: ''Eleven years ago (remember this written in 1986) in Out of My System, the influential literary critic Frederick Crews served notice that his Freudian sympathies were being eroded. Now, in a closely reasoned and witty new book, he shows where that reappraisal took him and why he has come to regard himself as an opponent of all 'self-validating' doctrines. The essays and occasional pieces that make up Skeptical Engagements are linked by a theme that Crews came to understand through trial and error: 'the fear of facing the world, including its works of literature, without an intellectual narcotic ready at hand.' Having witnessed psychoanalysis from the believer's vantage as well as the skeptic's, Crews offers a uniquely trenchant perspective on Freudian claims.'' BINDING/CONDITION: black boards with navy cloth at the spine; a Very Good book, the jacket is Very Good but for being faded at the spine. ISBN: 0195039505

Madness on the Couch: Blaming the Victim in the Heyday of Psychoanalysis.
New York: Simon & Schuster 1998. 1st Printing. Hardbound 8vo (about 9.5 inches tall) 368 pages. Notes, bibliography, index. Description: Includes a section of black and white p photo plates. The publisher's blurb reads: ''In the golden age of 'talk therapy', psychotherapists saw no limit to what they could do. Believing they had already explained the origins of war, homosexuality, anti-Semitism, and a host of neurotic ailments, they set out to conquer mental illness. Author Edward Dolnick focuses on the battles against schizophrenia, autism, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Armed with only words and the best of intentions, psychoanalysts set out to vanquish these enemies. They achieved the worst of outcomes. This account uses the voices of therapists as well as those of patients and their loved ones to describe the controversial methods used to treat the mentally ill, and their heartbreaking consequences. A gripping tale of hubris, arrogant pride, and terrible heartbreak, this combines the immediacy of journalism with the depth of history.''

The Scientific Credibility of Freud's Theories and Therapy.
New York: Basic Books 1977. 2nd Printing. Hardbound 8vo (about 9.5 inches tall) 502 pages. References, indexes. Description: The publisher's blurb reads: ''No one can seriously challenge the remarkable impact that Sigmund Freud, both as thinker and therapist, has made on twentieth-century thought. Yet, heretofore, there has been no single comprehensive volume examining and evaluating all the known efforts to test Freud's ideas scientifically. Here, then for the first time, two eminent psychologists, gathering scientific data from an immense range of available sources, integrate the various findings of the existing research and access the relevance of these studies for contemporary theory. Focusing their study on Freud's original models -- both his t theoretical views and his therapeutic constructs, the authors provide a step by step disciplined presentation of Freud's most influential ideas, tested against an existing pool of empirical information, and show how specific Freudian concepts have or have not been substantiated.''

MACMILLAN, MALCOLM.
Freud Evaluated: The Completed Arc.
Cambridge, Massachusetts: MIT Press 1997. Paperbound about 9 inches tall by 7 inches wide 762 pages. References, index. Description: Foreword by Frederick Crews. The publisher's blurb reads: ''Psychoanalysis: science or belief system? Since its initial publication this critique of Freud's methods for gathering and evaluating evidence has become a classic in Freud scholarship. Malcolm Macmillan's exhaustive analysis of Freud's personality theory describes the logical and other assumptions on which Freud's work was based and shows how these assumptions interacted with his clinical observations to produce all-embracing but faulty methods for gathering and evaluating evidence. Macmillan provides a meticulous account of the historical evolution of Freud's thought and its background in Freud's contacts with the books and people that influenced him, and evaluates the entirety of the Freudian system. Included is a compilation of major criticism of the methodology and assumptions of Freudian theory and a new comprehensive afterword b the author surveying the relevant literature published since 1989.''

Addresses on Psycho-Analysis (The International Psycho-Analytical Library No. 1).
London: Hogarth Press 1951. 2nd Printing. Hardbound 8vo (about 8.75 inches tall) 470 pages. Bibliography. Description: From the preface by Sigmund Freud: ''The Editor of this series must feel a special satisfaction in being able to issue as its opening volume this collection of the psycho-analytical writings of Professor James J Putnam, the distinguished neurologist of Harvard University. Professor Putnam, who died in 1918 at the age of seventy-two, was not only the first American to interest himself in psycho-analysis, but soon became its most decided supporter and its most influential representative in America. The papers here collected into a single volume, which were written by Putnam between 1909 and the end of his life, give a good picture of his relations to psychoanalysis.'' This is the first volume of a series, The International Psycho-Analytical Library, under the editorship of Ernest Jones, who wrote an obituary for this book. Originally published in 1921, this is the second impression. BINDING/CONDITION: green boards; owner's name on the front endpaper, otherwise a Very Good book, with a Good dust jacket; publisher's price on the jacket flap is intact. ISBN: 0007
