520    Élisabeth Roudinesco offers a bold and modern 
       reinterpretation of the iconic founder of psychoanalysis. 
       Based on new archival sources, this is Freud's biography 
       for the twenty-first century--a critical appraisal, at 
       once sympathetic and impartial, of a genius greatly 
       admired and yet greatly misunderstood in his own time and 
       in ours. Roudinesco traces Freud's life from his 
       upbringing as the eldest of eight siblings in a prosperous
       Jewish-Austrian household to his final days in London, a 
       refugee of the Nazis' annexation of his homeland. She 
       recreates the milieu of fin de siecle Vienna in the waning
       days of the Habsburg Empire--an era of extraordinary 
       artistic innovation, given luster by such luminaries as 
       Gustav Klimt, Stefan Zweig, and Gustav Mahler. In the 
       midst of it all, at the modest residence of Berggasse 19, 
       Freud pursued his clinical investigation of nervous 
       disorders, blazing a path into the unplumbed recesses of 
       human consciousness and desire. Yet this revolutionary who
       was overthrowing cherished notions of human rationality 
       and sexuality was, in his politics and personal habits, in
       many ways conservative, Roudinesco shows. In his 
       chauvinistic attitudes toward women, and in his stubborn 
       refusal to acknowledge the growing threat of Hitler until 
       it was nearly too late, even the analytically-minded Freud
       had his blind spots. Alert to his intellectual complexity-
       -the numerous tensions in his character and thought that 
       remained unresolved--Roudinesco ultimately views Freud 
       less as a scientific thinker than as the master 
       interpreter of civilization and culture.|cProvided by
