Publisher Comments:

Y2K! The world waits anxiously to see what millennial mischief crops up. But at Basic Books the year 2000 is cause for celebration. Fifty years ago Basic was founded as a home for works by outstanding scholars on topics of wide importance and broad general interest. Over the years our authors have inspired and informed, pleased and provoked generations of readers; indeed, many Basic titles have changed the very culture from which they emerged.<P>To commemorate our fiftieth year, we are proudly reissuing a selection of our most distinguished books from the last half-century. Here, in brand new packages, with new introductions and editorial comments by leading contemporary figures, are ten exemplars of the intellectual vigor that is the hallmark of Basic Books: classic titles by John Bowlby, Sigmund Freud, Josef Breuer, Claude Levi-Strauss, James Q. Wilson, Clifford Geertz, and Michael Walzer. That books like these remain in print is itself a testament to their enduring value. By calling attention to their sustained presence we hope to introduce new readers to landmark works that will continue to roil cultural waters for decades to come.<P>Freud's groundbreaking, trouble-making theory of sexuality — infantile (developmental), adolescent (transformational), and deviant — in the classic Strachey translation, with a new foreword by Nancy Chodorow, who re-animates it from the postmodern perspectives of feminist psychoanalysis and the sociology of gender.

Synopsis:

Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality

Sexual Abberations

Infantile Sexuality

Transformations of Puberty

"At the turn of the last century, Freud produced the Three Essays and The Interpretation of Dreams, the two pillars upon which the whole of his psychoanalysis sits like a lintel. Of the two, it is the Three Essays, with its outline of "the libido theory," that has again and again attracted controversy and spurred the later development of psychoanalysis." —Elisabeth Young-Bruehl

"Publishing the Three Essays in a new accessible edition is exciting in and of itself; the commentaries by Marcus and Chodorow make it an historic volume. It is fitting to have a contemporary thinker such as Chodorow help the next generation understand its monumental contributions." —Steven J. Ellman
