Sigmund Freud created psychoanalysis. However the mantle was picked up - and the theory and practice were developed by four women: Helene Deutsch, Karen Horney, Anna Freud and Melanie Klein. This book tells the life stories of these four women pioneers and their patients. In doing so it illustrates the way women analyists have drawn on the social equation of their sex with mother to go beyond the patriarchial orientation of Freudian psychoanalysis. The book uses a biographical and case history approach as an introduction to the subject - both to highlight what they had in common and where they differed from each other.
