Carl Gustav Jung has always been a popular but never a fashionable thinker. His ground-breaking theories about dream interpretation and psychological types have often been overshadowed by allegations that he was anti-Semitic and a Nazi sympathizer. Most accounts have unfortunately been marred by factual errors and quotes taken out of context; this has been due to the often partisan sympathies of those who have written about him. This book provides a more accurate and comprehensive account of Jung's controversial opinions about art, politics, and race.

MEDIA REVIEWS
es the shadows as well as the shadings of Jung's thoughts and actions. Of particular note in this regard is the author's careful contextual analysis of Jung's words and actions concerning Hitler and the Nazis." - Geoffrey Cocks, Julian S. Rammelkamp Professor of History, Albion College

"Jay Sherry goes to great scholarly lengths to paint the complex picture that was the cultural and political backdrop of the life and work of C. G. Jung. He handles these complex factors with a balanced intelligence and lack of bias. In so doing, he enables the reader to appreciate deeply that Jung was not only a truly exceptional individual but also a product of a broader world. Dr. Sherry is to be commended for so comprehensively and ably filling a significant and problematic gap in the world of Jung scholarship." - Stephen A. Martin, Co-Founder and President Emeritus of the Philemon Foundation and former Editor-in-Chief of Quadrant: The Journal of Contemporary Jungian Thought
