Riccardo Steiner, one of the most well known historians of psychoanalysis, has in the numerous papers in this volume traced the relationship between psychoanalysis and the larger cultural sphere with clarity and erudition. In this, his first book, he examines the effects of the 'new diaspora' in the field – the emigration of German and Austrian analysts during the Nazi persecution, especially to London. In particular he draws upon the correspondence between Ernest Jones and Anna Freud to illuminate the attitudes of those two central figures to 'the politics of emigration'.
