About the Author

Ricki Stefanie Tannen, L.L.M., Ph.D is an Analytical Psychologist, attorney, author, artist and former professor of women's studies, law and rhetoric. She has published and lectured internationally on the subjects of gender bias, depth psychology and constitutional law.


"Reading this amazing book puts one at the heart of that rare event - a major, discernible shift in human culture and behaviour. The Female Trickster is a really new take on women in Western society." - Andrew Samuels, Professor of Analytical Psychology, University of Essex, UK

"A stunning tour de force, The Female Trickster unites depth psychology, mythology, cultural theory, feminism, and literature in an incisive revelation of the feminine in a postmodern age. The analysis of the fictional female detective as trickster is a startling and valuable contribution to gender research. Tannen is to be congratulated on a book important for students of the humanities and clinicians alike." - Dr. Susan Rowland, University of Greenwich, UK

"In this excellent and provocative book, Ricki Tannen displays creativity and a refreshing lack of inhibition in her criticism of traditional mores and exposure of the flaw in our cultures that do not recognise the female trickster...I have recommended this book to my colleagues and my patients." - Marilyn Newman Metzi, from PsycCRITIQUES Vol 52, December 2007
