Part II is called Freud's Mexico. We are treated to several different aspects of Freud's relationship to Mexico. Of great interest was Freud's relationship to Eduard Silberstein. This was an intense adolescent relationship that Gallo describes vividly. Central to the relationship was the learning of Spanish, which the boys did without a teacher and in secrecy. A primary focus was on a Cervantes novel as a source of Spanish text and also with content related to other parts of this book. From there Gallo provides us with a discussion of Austrian and Mexican history as they relate to each other and also to Freud's interest in antiquities. This involved Totem and Taboo and the role of human sacrifice in Aztec history. He discusses differing scholarly views of these sacrifices, from those of sheer horror to the question of whether such activity was in some ways more civilized than that of the Western world. With all this in mind, Gallo considers the evidence for Freud's special relationship to Mexico, although he was never actually there. Freud's books and artifacts give some support, but then Gallo turns to three of Freud's dreams and the story becomes more interesting and integrates what has come before. Using Freud's methods of reconstruction, Gallo discusses three dreams: the Breakfast Ship, Count Thun, and the Self-Dissection dream. Gallo draws from Freud's own interpretations as well as those of a number of psychoanalytic scholars. He also uses his own reconstructive efforts, including noting Freud's "slips of the pen" to present intriguing insights.
