about this book

In 1907 Sigmund Freud and Carl Gustav Jung began what promised to be a momentous collaboration and deep friendship. Six years later they were bitter antagonists, locked in a struggle that was as much personal and emotional as it was theoretical and professional. Between them stood Sabina Spierlrein, who had had relations with both men before becoming an innovative psychoanalyst herself. This is the mesmerizing book which reconstructs the fatal triangle which encompasses clinical method and politics, hysteria and anti-Semitism, sexual duplicity and intellectual brilliance wielded as blackmail.
