Review by:
George J. Makari

Psychoanalysis in Its Cultural Context” is the third annual volume of Austrian Studies, an interdisciplinary journal of cultural history edited by Edward Timms and Ritchie Robertson. This group of essays and reviews promises to broaden and revise the history of psychoanalysis by taking into account the ideas of “dissenting followers and forgotten adversaries” (p. ix).

Paul Roazen, author of Freud and His Followers(1975), among other works, opens this volume with an essay titled “The Historiography of Psychoanalysis.” Roazen cogently reviews the history of Freud studies in a way not unfamiliar to those who have followed the revisionist critiques of the last two decades. Roazen's criticism of the way some psychoanalytic literature has employed Freud's legend to achieve intellectual authority has, I think, validity.
