This completely revised edition of Men, Women, Passion and Power offers a new critique of conventional notions of masculinity and femininity. Contemporary psychoanalytic debates about sexuality are explored, revealing how the cultural idealisation of men is replicated in theory and clinical practice.

Illustrated with use of detailed and vivid case material, this book demonstrates that it is only when the feminist perspective has been truly integrated into theory that the psychoanalytic project will realise its full radical potential. Subjects covered include:

* The power of female sexuality
* Race, class and sexuality
* The fragility of male sexual identity
* Envy between the sexes.

Marie Maguire argues that examining these issues and gaining an awareness of how our assumptions are influenced by social inequalities can enrich the psychotherapeutic process and result in a more balanced psychological relation between the sexes.

Men, Women, Passion and Power will be of great interest to psychotherapists, psychoanalytic practitioners and anyone with an interest in the integration of a feminist perspective into psychoanalytic theory.
