In this amazingly fresh history of interwar psychiatry in the German-speaking countries; David Freis explores how the era’s most renowned psychiatrists (Emil Kraepelin; Erwin Stransky; and Auguste Forel among others) shifted their diagnostic language from the clinic to society at large. … Readable; dynamic; and deeply researched; David Freis’s ebook is a valuable reminder of the human cost of false associations between nationalism and mental health theory; then as now.” — Elizabeth Ann Danto; Hunter College of City University of New York; USA
