Child Abuse in Freuds Vienna is the story of that forgotten sensation in this fabled city.In the autumn of 1899, Viennas attention was focused not on its extraordinary cultural life, but on child abuse--specifically, two cases of child murder and two of abuse. While Sigmund Freud was anxiously awaiting the publication of The Interpretation of Dreams, in which he first theorized about the Oedipal hostilities between parents and children, every days headlines proclaimed the ugly reality of child abuse. Focusing on the four cases that dominated the pages of the newspapers, Larry Wolffs riveting narrative paints a picture of a great city enthralled by a spectacle it desperately wished to ignore.
