Totem and Taboo: By Sigmund Freud. Authorized translation by James Strachey. New York: W. W. Norton & Co., Inc., 1952. 161 pp.

Review by:
R. G.

The publication of a new translation makes this monograph available in a separate volume, as Dr. A. A. Brill's translation has long been incorporated among The Modern Library's Basic Writings of Sigmund Freud.

In an introductory translator's note, Mr. Strachey states: 'For the purposes of the present, entirely new, version I have made an effort to verify all quotations and references so far as possible; and I have put right a considerable number of inaccuracies which had crept into the German editions'. Mr. Strachey has supplied numerous references and explanatory notes, identifiable from Freud's text by their inclusion between square brackets.

This new edition provides an occasion for rereading this classic in a form and format most highly to be recommended.
