First English Edition. An authorized English translation

“A collection of four essays first published in the journal Imago (1912/13) employing the application of psychoanalysis to the fields of archaeology, anthropology, and the study of religion: "The Savage’s Dread of Incest"; "Taboo and the Ambivalence of Emotions"; "Animism, Magic and the Omnipotence of Thoughts"; and "The Infantile Recurrence of Totemism"

Though Totem and Taboo has been seen as one of the classics of anthropology, comparable to Edward Burnett Tylor's Primitive Culture (1871) and Sir James George Frazer's The Golden Bough (1890), the work is now considered discredited by anthropologists. The cultural anthropologist Alfred L. Kroeber was an early critic of Totem and Taboo, publishing a critique of the work in 1920. Some authors have seen redeeming value in the work”.
