From Library Journal:
This historical account of 19th-century psychiatry in America suggests a greater sensitivity to psychological factors in medical practice than is often recognized. The book focuses on "neurasthenia," a catchall term that described a variety of "nervousness" short of insanity touching a sizable percentage of the population. Using quantitative as well as anecdotal material, the author convincingly portrays the ubiquitous nature of this complaint in all reaches of American life and the broad attempts to treat it. The book provides some interesting case vignettes and convincingly links this period with more contemporary psychiatric approaches, but much of the material has been more exhaustively covered elsewhere. Paul Hymowitz, Cornell Medical Ctr., New York
