The Fear of Women

Wolfgang Lederer, M.D.

1968.  Paperback.  In inquiry into the enigma of Woman and why men through the ages have both loved and dreaded her.  

In an important pioneering study Dr. Lederer has given us new insights into the relationship between the sexes.  Drawing on a wide spectrum of sources--archaeology, ethnology, religion, mythology, art, literature, linguistics, as well as psychiatry and psychoanalysis--the author attempts to show not what women really are but what men through the ages have feared them to be--a fear that even Freud did not choose to penetrate and that has remained almost totally unacknowledged by psychotherapy.

Dr. Lederer's findings have importance not only for clinicians but for all men who are gripped by the unreasonable fears described in his study and for all women who are working for liberation from male prejudice and domination.  What both sexes should try to achieve, writes Dr. Lederer, is not equality or freedom alone but perfection of man's and woman's uniqueness.
