Freud's early psychohistory may have influenced his focus on parents as the primary recipients of incestuous desires and murderous impulses. This lively book redresses the relative neglect of siblings in psychoanalysis. With great sensitivity and clinical expertise, the authors unfurl narratives of early passion, catastrophe and intrigue between siblings, offering insight into twin transferences, and the neglected sibship roots of peer transactions and social battlefields. - Professor Joan Raphael-Leff, Psychoanalyst; Leader, Teen-Parents' Project, UCL/Anna Freud Centre, London
