    DescriptionSigmund Freud (1856-1939) revolutionized the way in which we think about ourselves.

ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly.
