Presented here is a new form of psychoanalysis, one that is centered on women as seen by women. Women Analyze Women contains interviews with nineteen of the most prominent and innovative women analysts and writers. The authors have persuaded them to speak freely on topics such as feminism, sexuality, love, gender differences, and sometimes their lives as anlysts and analysands, political activists, wives, and mothers. Personal and intimate, these sessions cut across theoretical barriers and allow the analysts to speak directly and candidly, as the following excerpt from the interview with JOyce McDougall shows: "Men and women deal with tender and erotic feelings differnetly. If I speek in very simple terms, it seems to me that women are constatnly eager to stabilize their love relationships and within those, their sexual relationships. They are always terrified of abandonment, rejection, and loss. The men are terrified of getting caught. It is a wonder that the sexes ever get together at all. Men are frantic about getting trapped, and women are frantic about being left." The book offfers intriguing, provocative, and stimulating discussions of critical issues, revealng a number of startling differences and remarkable similarities among the more avant-garde French anlaysts and the more tarditional Anglo-American schools.

The murder of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin and the subsequent trial and acquittal of his assailant, George Zimmerman, sparked a passionate national debate about race and criminal justice in America that involved everyone from bloggers to mayoral candidates to President Obama himself. With increased attention to these causes, from St. Louis to Los Angeles, intense outrage at New York City’s Stop and Frisk program and escalating anger over the effect of mass incarceration on the nation’s African American community, the Trayvon Martin case brought the racialized nature of the American justice system to the forefront of our national consciousness. Deadly Injustice uses the Martin/Zimmerman case as a springboard to examine race, crime, and justice in our current criminal justice system. Contributors explore how race and racism informs how Americans think about criminality, how crimes are investigated and prosecuted, and how the media interprets and reports on crime. At the center of their analysis sit examples of the Zimmerman trial and Florida’s controversial Stand Your Ground law, providing current and resonant examples for readers as they work through the bigger-picture problems plaguing the American justice system. This important volume demonstrates how highly publicized criminal cases go on to shape public views about offenders, the criminal process, and justice more generally, perpetuating the same unjust cycle for future generations. A timely, well-argued collection, Deadly Injustice is an illuminating, headline-driven text perfect for students and scholars of criminology and an important contribution to the discussion of race and crime in America.
