Review of Janice Haaken, Pillar of Salt: gender, memory, and the perils of looking back [Book Review]

Metapsychology 4 (22) (2000)
  Copy   BIBTEX


I hope that this wonderful book, written with a passionate and sympathetic intelligence, reaches a wide audience. It's not an easy read, for Janice Haaken deliberately spins a dense web of reference, pursuing paths across the contemporary psycho-political landscape. But her scholarship is marvellously diverse and well-directed, and her writing easily shifts between sad or playful fantasy, and insistently engaged political or empirical analysis.
