The "Wolfman" was among Freud's most famous cases, and here the volume gets what the publisher is calling "the first major new translation in more than 30 years." In addition to the Wolfman, so called because the patient had frequent dreams of wolves, this also contains his notes on the "Ratman," "Little Hans," and other notable patients. The Schreber Case is Freud's analysis of Judge Daniel Schreber's memoir, which determined that the subject was suffering from multiple neuroses. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
