"A seminal text in the women's movement."
-Ethel S. Person, author of The Sexual Century

"Still the most important work of feminist psychoanalytic exploration, its re-release is a celebratory occasion."
-Eli Sagan, author of Freud, Women and Mortality

" The Mermaid and the Minotaur] continues to astonish us with the depth and wisdom of its psychoanalytic approach even as its major ideas have become as unobtrusively essential to psychoanalytic feminism as the atmosphere."
-Jessica Benjamin, author of The Bonds of Love
