A century after it was written, Breuer and Freud’s Studies on Hysteria continues to challenge. In Storms in Her Head, many of today’s most renowned psychoanalysts and cultural theorists revisit the cases it contains, reflecting on how six suffering women continue to engage us with problems of theory and practice. Each author offers a major contribution to current psychoanalytic thinking about culture and its influence on the mind, the body and clinical process. Storms in Her Head offers an eclectic and lively set of opinions on Freud, his hysterical patients, and the psychoanalytic journey they began together.
