This book explores Sigmund Freud's visit to the United States and investigates the transnational movement of his ideas to the United States, revealing how the best scholars today take seriously the evidence that the effect of his ideas in the United States, for good or for ill, was indeed a major historical event of the twentieth century. In addition, it provides reflections on how Freud's contentions achieved remarkable visibility in the United States in the middle of the twentieth century and then how his legacy declined in importance or became relatively invisible at the end of the century. It is shown that the effect of Freud's ideas in the United States was powerful and remarkable across all of the divisions of learning in a society of growing specialization and disciplinarity. This Introduction provides an overview of the chapters included in the book.
