The Harmony of Illusions Inventing Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Princeton University Press (1995)
  Copy   BIBTEX


As far back as we know, there have been individuals incapacitated by memories that have filled them with sadness, remorse, horror, or loss. Today people tormented with such recollections are diagnosed with "post-traumatic stress disorder". Anthropologist Allan Young traces this malady, particularly as it is suffered by Vietnam veterans, to its beginnings in the emergence of ideas about the unconscious mind. 328 pp. Copyright © Libri GmbH.
