Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(1), 74. Reviews the book, Cooperation between the sexes: Writings on women, love and marriage, sexuality and its disorders by Alfred Adler (Edited and translated by Heinz L. Ansbacher and Rowena R. Ansbacher) (1978). This book represents a welcome contribution. Many of the excerpts are uncannily contemporary in problem focus. This is particularly true of his comments on women's social rules. It is discouraging to realize that the issues were quite salient so long ago and that so little has changed. Ansbacher has appended a helpful, even though sketchy, essay that creates a personal and social context for many of Adler's ideas. It must be noted, lest we think that he was altogether up-to-date, that his views on homosexuality are quite traditional. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
