Politics on the Couch: Citizenship and the Internal Life
This is an account of the hidden psychology of politics and the hidden politics of the psyche. It is packed with ideas on economics, nationalism, 'good-enough' leadership, the citizen and the state, women and men, fatherhood, and the citizen as a 'therapist of the world'. Samuels offers trenchant and timely critiques of the crisis in contemporary politics.
