About the book:

This work examines how feminists have dealt with "disagreeable passions" such as rage, greed, anger and hate. Burack provides an account of women as ambivalent: both empathic and enraged, loving and hating. Examining the work of such feminist theorists as Carol Gilligan, Nancy Chodorow, Jessica Benjamin and Dorothy Dinnerstein, Burack argues that feminist social theory can be repaired through attention to the psychoanalytic work of Melanie Klein. "The Problem of the Passions" should be of interest to feminists, psychoanalysts, political scientists and social theorists.
