- In stock online
In the long and passionate debate within psychoanalysis over the theory of female sexuality, which has spanned more than a century and reached no definitive conclusion, a pattern of non-acceptance of ideas, their disappearance and then re-emergence later is a continually repeating one. The Anatomy of the Clitoris shows how this happens, using a comprehensive guide to the literature. The time is right culturally to explore this further usingclinical material as illustration. The central aim of this book is to introduce recent innovative redrawing of female anatomy appearing in the scientific literature to psychoanalysis.

`Anne Zachary draws on a rich mix of history, biology, psychoanalytic theory, and a wealth of clinical experience in her study of female sexuality. She questions widely held beliefs about the female body, and suggests that a re-interpretation of the form and functions of female genitalia has important implications for how we can understand women's social and sexual identities and experiences.'-Renee Danziger, fellow of the British Psychoanalytical Society
