New introductory lectures on psychoanalysis by Sigmund Freud( Book )
82 editions published between 1933 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 3,831 libraries worldwide
In 1915 at the University of Vienna 60-year-old Sigmund Freud delivered these lectures on psychoanalysis, pointing to the interplay of unconscious and conscious forces within individual psyches. In reasoned progression he outlined core psychoanalytic concepts, such as repression, free association and libido. Of the various English translations of Freud's major works to appear in his lifetime, only one was authorized by Freud himself: The Standard Edition of the Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud under the general editorship of James Strachey. Freud approved the overall editorial plan, specific renderings of key words and phrases, and the addition of valuable notes, from bibliographical and explanatory. Many of the translations were done by Strachey himself; the rest were prepared under his supervision. The result was to place the Standard Edition in a position of unquestioned supremacy over all other existing versions. Newly designed in a uniform format, each new paperback in the Standard Edition opens with a biographical essay on Freud's life and work --along with a note on the individual volume--by Peter Gay, Sterling Professor of History at Yale. --Publisher

48 editions published between 1949 and 2011 in English and held by 2,300 libraries worldwide
"In June 1938, at eighty-two, Freud began writing this terse survey of the fundamentals of psychoanalysis. He marshals here the whole range of psychoanalytic theory and therapy in lucid prose and continues his open-mindedness to new departures, such as the potential of drug therapy. While the book remains unfinished, it covers the essentials of psychoanalysis"--Back cover
Civilization and its discontents by Sigmund Freud( Book )
42 editions published between 1930 and 2011 in English and German and held by 2,074 libraries worldwide
Overview: Freud's seminal volume of twentieth-century cultural thought grounded in psychoanalytic theory, now with a new introduction by Christopher Hitchens. Written in the decade before Freud's death, Civilization and Its Discontents may be his most famous and most brilliant work. It has been praised, dissected, lambasted, interpreted, and reinterpreted. Originally published in 1930, it seeks to answer several questions fundamental to human society and its organization: What influences led to the creation of civilization? Why and how did it come to be? What determines civilization's trajectory? Freud's theories on the effect of the knowledge of death on human existence and the birth of art are central to his work. Of the various English translations of Freud's major works to appear in his lifetime, only Norton's Standard Edition, under the general editorship of James Strachey, was authorized by Freud himself. This new edition includes both an introduction by the renowned cultural critic and writer Christopher Hitchens as well as Peter Gay's classic biographical note on Freud

Group psychology and the analysis of the ego by Sigmund Freud( Book )
43 editions published between 1922 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 570 libraries worldwide
"To Freud, individual and social psychology were virtually identical. The question he addresses here is, What are the emotional bonds that hold collective entities, such as an army and a church, together? It is a fruitful question, and Freud offers some interesting answers. But Group Psychology and the Analysis of the Ego stand chiefly as an invitation to further psychoanalytic exploration."--Back cover

Beyond the pleasure principle by Sigmund Freud( Book )
21 editions published between 1950 and 2010 in English and German and held by 423 libraries worldwide
Throughout the period when Freud wrote his major works, various translations and editions, differing widely in the accuracy of their texts and the quality of their content, made their appearance. Increasingly, as the body of Freud's work achieved commanding stature, the need arose for a definitive and uniformly authentic English-language edition of all his writings, The Standard Edition of the Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud was undertaken to achieve this goal. The work is under the general editorship of James Strachey, and he himself made new translations of many of the writings, supervising the emendation of others and contributing valuable notes, both bibliographical and explanatory. THe result is to place this edition in a position of unquestioned supremacy over all other existing versions--which are in fact rendered obsolete

Two short accounts of psycho-analysis (Five lectures on psycho-analysis and the Question of lay analysis) by Sigmund Freud( Book )
30 editions published between 1959 and 1991 in English and German and held by 340 libraries worldwide
When Sigmund Freud was invited to lecture in America in 1909 he expounded, for the first time at any length, the results of his work in Vienna over many years. He described in these "Five Lectures on Psycho-Analysis" his abandonment of hypnosis and his adoption, in order to disclose repressed complexes, of "free association", the interpretation of dreams and the reason for apparently haphazard actions and errors. He devoted one lecture to the fundamental subject of sexuality and spoke of transference in analysis. When, in 1926, he came to write "The Questions of Lay Analysis" in defence of a non-medical colleague acccused of quackery, he had greatly developed his theory of the structure of the mind, with its "ego" and its "id", and this pamphlet provides a description of psychoanalysis and its relation to orthodox medicine. -- Back cover
