Terry A. Kupers M.D. Revisioning Men's Lives: Gender, Intimacy, and Power

The challenge that confronts men is to find ways to be powerful without oppressing anyone, and in the process to redefine power, heroism, and masculinity  This is an immense challenge. And men will never meet it in isolation.  We need new kinds of bonds among men and between men and women, straight and gay, if we are to construct, collectively, new forms of masculinity and new and better gender relations.

Judith M. Hughes From Freud's Consulting Room

Hughes charts the development of Freud's ideas through his clinical work, the successes and failures of his most dramatic and significant case histories, and the creation of a discipline recognizably distinct from its neighbors. Hughes also traces the evolution of Freud's conception of the analytic situation and of the centrality of transference, again through the clinical material, including the case of Freud himself, who at one point figured as his own chief patient.    "A tour de force - original, incisive, and a pleasure to read."  Paul Robinson<

Jeffrey Berman Ph.D. The Talking Cure: Literary Representations of Psychoanalysis

Berman examines a distinguished group of authors with disparate attitudes towards psychoanalysis: early 20th-century feminist Charlotte Perkins Gilman, F.Scott Fitzgerald, T.S. Eliot, Sylvia Plath, Joanne Greenberg (Hannah Green), Doris Lessing, Vladimir Nabokov, Philip Roth, and D.M. Thomas. He explores various issues but tends to return to the relationship between the creative process and the therapeutic process: how artists can heal themselves and others by turning their sufferings into art.

Jeffrey Berman Ph.D. Narcissism and the Novel

"... Berman has tackled one of the most elusive, yet central concepts of psychoanalytic theory and has managed to integrate and clarify the many confusing and contradictory writings on the subject. Marvelously incisive and inventive, the book will delight the lay reader and yet meet all scholarly standards of psychology and lterature. ... It is instructive, entertaining, provocative, clever, witty, empathic, judgmental, and highly original. It is a work of art, a scholarly tour de force and truly a generous gift to the reader." – Sophie Freud
