Jacques Lacan & Co: a history of psychoanalysis in France by Élisabeth Roudinesco



"Roudinesco provides a finely drawn map of the intellectual debates within French psychoanalysis, especially under the influence of the German emigrés during the 1930s and 1940s. She is a good historian, in that she provides not only a narrative history but also extensive passages from Lacan's own oral-history interviews with the various figures, so that we have not only her commentary but some flavor of the original documentation. Many of the quotes are gems."--Sander I. Gilman, Bulletin of the History of Medicine
