Similar to his theory of dreams, Freud asserts that jokes are an abbreviated expression of the unconscious, and analyzes German language jokes from 1905 Austria. Crick (University of Nottingham) does an excellent job of molding Freud's arguments into a form both accurate and accessible for the English reader. No index.
