The "Psychoanalysis and Jewish Life" book series has been established to promote scholarship, research, and a wide range of theoretical, textual, and clinical studies on the multiple interconnections between and mutual influence of Judaism and contemporary psychoanalysis. Its aim is broad, spanning a wide variety of subject areas: from the origins of psychoanalysis in Jewish circles of turn-of-the-century Vienna to clinical studies illuminating contemporary facets of Jewish identity and self-understanding; from explorations of psychological aspects of Jewish theology to psychoanalytic investigations of anti-Semitism; from studies of Jewish religious ritual to analyses of Hasidic mysticism and folklore; from psychoanalytic studies of pre-World War II Yiddish theater to the clinical practice of psychoanalysis in modern-day Tel-Aviv. The "Psychoanalysis and Jewish Life" series provides a home for fresh and intellectually challenging contributions across the spectrum of this interdisciplinary area of scholarship.
