 About the Book 

In this book, Anthony Elliott traces the rise of psychoanalysis from the Frankfurt School to postmodernism. Examining how path-breaking theorists such as Adorno, Marcuse, Lacan and Lyotard have deployed psychoanalysis to politicize issues like desire, sexuality, repression and identity, Elliott asesses the gains and losses arising from this appropriation of psychoanalysis in social theory and cultural studies.
