Abstract:

Hysteria - the tormenting of the body by the troubled mind - is among the most pervasive of human disorders; yet, at the same time, it is the most elusive. Freud's recognition that hysteria stemmed from traumas in the patient's past transformed the way we think about sexuality. [This book] revolutionized our understanding of love, desire, and the human psyche. As full of compassionate human interest as of scientific insight - and now in a rich, accessible new translation - these case histories are also remarkable, revelatory works of literature.-Back cover.
