byElisabeth Young-Bruehl. Jonathan said: It took me forever to get through this book.

Elizabeth Young-Bruehl is a professor at Haverford College and a member of the Philadelphia Association for Psychoanalysis; this psychological background is very much evident in her writing. Young-Bruehl’s obvious knowledge of psychoanalysis, often times made reading Anna Freud: a Biography difficult. For example, the book covered many of Anna Freud’s theories and this being a biography and not a psychology textbook it was difficult to comprehend without previous knowledge of her theories.

She published a wide range of books, most notably biographies of Hannah Arendt and Anna Freud. Her 1982 biography of Hannah Arendt won the first Harcourt Award while The Anatomy of Prejudices won the Association of American Publishers' prize for Best Book in Psychology in 1996

Elisabeth Young-Bruehl. The first authorized biography since Anna Freud's death in 1982, this detailed and insightful work reveals as much about the roots of psychoanalysis as it does about the life of this youngest daughter of Sigmund Freud. Basing her portrayal on primary materials such as correspondence, manuscripts, poetry, and dream interpretations as well as on interviews with Freud's friends, colleagues, and analysands, Young-Bruehl (Wesleyan University) offers a unique chronicle of creativity and dedication to psychoanalysis. The book presents Anna as a hurting girl/woman who accepts feminine masochism to gain admiration of her father.

Anna Freud is the extraordinary life of the founder of child analysis, who was Digmund Freud's youngest daughter. Anna Freud (1895-1982) grew up vying with psychoanalysis for her father's attention.

Young-Bruehl’s description of one of the most complex but brilliant lights in psychoanalytic history has stood as a beacon to students of psychoanalytic history. It is the best most carefully crafted biography of any psychoanalyst and it illuminates the entire tradition with a clarity that only the exploration of the life of the daughter of the founder of the movement could possibly provide.

Elisabeth Young-Bruehl has written a most comprehensive biography of Anna Freud. Anna Freud's remarkable achievements and her continuous struggle to tame her own conflicts are presented in the wider context of the psychoanalytic Zeitgeist, the evolvement of a psychoanalytic body of knowledge, and the network of relationships with those who remained loyal to her father and psychoanalysis and those who eventually turned away. The chapter headings of this book reveal the wide terrain presented, the author's scope of reference, and her selection of what she considers to be the significant issues in the stages of Anna Freud's life. This is a summary or excerpt from the full text of the book or article.

Drawing on never-before-used correspondence, manuscripts, and memorabilia, this portrait captures the many-layered relationship that Anna shared with her noted father, as well as capturing life in early twentieth-century Vienna
Reviews: 3
A well-informed and researched history of Anna Freud, rich in factual detail, historical context, and analytic insights. It is a very enjoyable read.
Lots of insight not only to Freud himself but divulges much about Anna
Anna Freud sought an acceptance by a father who denied affection and equality to women in general, and particularly in his nuclear family. Undergoing psychoanalysis by her father, she arrived at a position of affection relevant to preserving the family myth of omnipotence in psychoanalysis.

As a Jewish intellectual, Sigmund Freud fails to believe in the dangers to him during the Nazi regime in Vienna. Only when Anna is detained (almost too late) does he agree to flee to England. Anna struggles to be all that is loveable to her father. She defends the rigidity of Freudian theories, rather than appreciating them as the beginning for future growth and changes.

The book presents Anna as a hurting girl/woman who accepts feminine masochism to gain admiration of her father. Her own work does contribute insight into childhood stress and psychological stability or destruction during the bombing blitzes of London in WW II.
