[SEU57a10]The present translation is based on that published in 1930.

[SEU57a11]The first chapter of the German original was published slightly in advance of the rest of the book in Psychoanal. Bewegung, 1 (4), November-December, 1929. The fifth chapter appeared separately in the next issue of the same periodical, 2 (1), January-February, 1930. Two or three extra footnotes were included in the edition of 1931 and a new final sentence was added to the work. None of these additions appeared in the earlier version of the English translation.

[SEU57a12]Freud had finished The Future of an Illusion in the autumn of 1927. During the following two years, chiefly, no doubt, on account of his illness, he produced very little. But in the summer of 1929 he began writing another book, once more on a sociological subject. The first draft was finished by the end of July; the book was sent to the printers early in November and was actually published before the end of the year, though it carried the date ‘1930’ on its title-page (Jones, 1957, 157-8).
