Freud, Race, and Gender
Sander L. Gilman

Book Description | Table of Contents

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

"This book contains astonishing morsels of European cultural and medical history, the sort of thing you find yourself reading aloud over the breakfast table on a Sunday morning. The author has read widely in all kinds of English and German-language sources . . . and makes free use of them. His most striking examples illustrate the institutionalized racism of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The degree to which anti-Semitism, especially, permeated medicine and all the biological sciences during Freud's lifetime comes as a revelation even to those who flatter themselves with some knowledge of the period."--Rita Goldberg, The Boston Book Review

"Gilman synthesizes the work of psychoanalysts, Freud biographers, literary critics, and historians to provide this impressive new reading of the meanings of `race' and `gender' in Freud's time. With admirable scholarship, the author tackles numerous assumptions about the manner in which Freud's Jewish male identity shaped his scientific stance in and against antisemitic culture. . . . The book also has great relevance to contemporary debates on multiculturalism."--Choice
