This book explores how the present is troubled by the past and the future. It uses the idea of haunting to explore how identities, beliefs, intimacies and hatreds are transmitted across generations and between people and how these things structure psychosocial and psychopolitical life.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a welcome addition to Frosh's earlier books on psychoanalysis and, like them, it is rigorous, clear and engaging . . . and can be highly recommended for extending understanding of psychoanalytic theory and its ethical foundations, and for placing these in the context of social and political issues." - Therapy Today

"There are rich rewards in this book. It will change the way you think about things that might haunt you." - The Jewish Chronicle

"Widely read and open-minded, Frosh rolls with the punches thrown at his discipline, accepts the critiques, assimilates the writings of Fanon, Jacques Derrida, Judith Butler, Slavoj Zizek and others of their ilk and appropriates them to tease out the implications and possible applications that haunting and related uncanny phenomena have for psychoanalysis." - Jewish Quarterly

'In Hauntings Frosh eloquently provides a stimulating and original contribution to the field of hauntology. [ ] The reader is led on a thought-provoking stroll down the more paranormal and supernatural avenues of psychoanalytic discussion and hears the voices of those areas of psychoanalysis that have long been buried and en-crypted in classic academic analysis.' - The Kelvingrove Review

'Frosh certainly does enlighten us on the nature of modern psychoanalytic thinking.' - Journal of the Society for Psychical Research
