Free Association Books is an innovative project started in 1980s London. It arose as the brainchild of Bob Young and colleagues, who, disillusioned by the decline of the liberatory movement, began a search using psychoanalysis to understand the problems of liberation. Other key figures involved in the movement were Michael Rustin, Karl Figlio, Barry Richards, Andrew Samuels, Bob Hinshelwood, Andrew Cooper. It grew quickly into a publishing house which produced well-made books by a new international generation of young psychoanalysts.
Its house journal was Free Associations, which commenced publication in 1984, initially as "Radical Science 15". Its annual conference, "Psychoanalysis and the Public Sphere" ran in conjunction with the University of East London.
Authors who have published with them include Mary Barnes, Janine Chasseguet-Smirgel (for English translations), Michael Fordham, André Green, Donna Haraway, Oliver James, Joel Kovel, Michel Odent, Paul Roazen and Eugene Victor Wolfenstein
