Madness

Original Synopsis

"Madness has a total of 354 pages which are papers from writer 'Petteri Pietikäinen'. Madness: A History is a thorough and accessible account of madness from antiquity to modern times, offering a large-scale yet nuanced picture of mental illness and its varieties in western civilization. The book opens by considering perceptions and experiences of madness starting in Biblical times, Ancient history and Hippocratic medicine to the Age of Enlightenment, before moving on to developments from the late 18th century to the late 20th century and the Cold War era. Petteri Pietikäinen looks at issues such as 18th century asylums, the rise of psychiatry, the history of diagnoses, the experiences of mental health patients, the emergence of neuroses, the impact of eugenics, the development of different treatments, and the late 20th century emergence of anti-psychiatry and the modern malaise of the worried well. The book examines the history of madness at the different levels of micro-, meso- and macro: the social and cultural forces shaping the medical and lay perspectives on madness, the invention and development of diagnoses as well as the theories and treatment methods by physicians, and the patient experiences inside and outside of the mental institution. Drawing extensively from primary records written by psychiatrists and accounts by mental health patients themselves, it also gives readers a thorough grounding in the secondary literature addressing the history of madness. An essential read for all students of the history of mental illness, medicine and society more broadly. 2015-05-15 time of publication of the book, [-Routledge-]"

What is Madness?

Original Synopsis

"What is Madness? has a total of 368 pages which are papers from writer 'Darian Leader'. What is Madness? is Darian Leader's probing study of madness, sanity, and everything in between What separates the sane from the mad? How hard or easy is it to tell them apart? And what if the difference is really between being mad and going mad? In this landmark work Darian Leader undermines common conceptions of madness. Through case studies like the apparently 'normal' Harold Shipman, he shows that madness rarely conforms to standard models. What is Madness? explores the idea of quiet madness - that at times many of us live interior lives that are far from sane but allow us to function normally and unthreateningly - he argues that we must seek a new way to assess, treat and deal with those suffering mental health problems. What is Madness? is Darian Leader's radically insightful and masterfully convincing exploration of a painful, complex but endlessly fascinating area of humanity. 'A terrific intellectual stylist' Joseph O' Neill, Guardian 'Engrossing and enlightening . . . Leader is as much a philosopher as a psychoanalyst' Metro 'The mad . . . have been segregated and often confined; for fear, perhaps, that they will contaminate the rest of us. But as Darian Leader brilliantly shows, things are never so simple' Hanif Kureshi, Independent 'Provides valuable insights into how psychiatry can help those who have suffered psychosis to rebuild their lives' Sunday Times 'Witty, probing. A myth-busting diagnosis of the method in our madness' Independent 'Leader's insights could have radical consequences for the way we regard madness' Daily Telegraph 'Fascinating. A formidable grasp of psychiatric history and a storyteller's flair for detail. What Leader does so effectively is to give us a sense of what it might be like to live inside the mind of a psychotic. A humane and timely book' New Statesman 'Superb insights, brilliant' Observer 'One of our most important contemporary thinkers' Guardian Darian Leader is a psychoanalyst practising in London and a member of the Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research and of the College of Psychoanalysts - UK. He is the author of The New Black, Strictly Bipolar, Why do women write more letters than they post?, Promises lovers make when it gets late, Freud's Footnotes and Stealing the Mona Lisa, and co-author, with David Corfield, of Why Do People Get Ill?

Madness

Original Synopsis

"Madness has a total of 320 pages which are papers from writer 'Marya Hornbacher'. An astonishing dispatch from inside the belly of bipolar disorder, reflecting major new insights When Marya Hornbacher published her first book, Wasted: A Memoir of Anorexia and Bulimia, she did not yet have the piece of shattering knowledge that would finally make sense of the chaos of her life. At age twenty-four, Hornbacher was diagnosed with Type I rapid-cycle bipolar, the most severe form of bipolar disorder. In Madness, in her trademark wry and utterly self-revealing voice, Hornbacher tells her new story. Through scenes of astonishing visceral and emotional power, she takes us inside her own desperate attempts to counteract violently careening mood swings by self-starvation, substance abuse, numbing sex, and self-mutilation. How Hornbacher fights her way up from a madness that all but destroys her, and what it is like to live in a difficult and sometimes beautiful life and marriage -- where bipolar always beckons -- is at the center of this brave and heart-stopping memoir. Madness delivers the revelation that Hornbacher is not alone: millions of people in America today are struggling with a variety of disorders that may disguise their bipolar disease. And Hornbacher's fiercely self-aware portrait of her own bipolar as early as age four will powerfully change, too, the current debate on whether bipolar in children actually exists. Ten years after Kay Redfield Jamison's An Unquiet Mind, this storm of a memoir will revolutionize our understanding of bipolar disorder. 2009-04-01 time of publication of the book, [-Houghton Mifflin Harcourt-]"

Madness

Original Synopsis

"Madness has a total of 40 pages which are papers from writer 'Paul Forrold'. Description'Madness - a document' charts one man's descent into insanity. In a world of spirits he engages in a war on the oppressive society he sees around him, until he is sectioned and returned to 'normal'. It contains writing and artwork produced during those convulsive years. The whole adds up to a unique picture of a life in extreme circumstances. About the AuthorBorn in 1966 Paul Forrold is a midlands based artist and writer. Experiencing episodes of psychosis from the age of 16, he saw these as merely part of an artistic sensibility, until aged 25 he was absorbed into a world of magic which turned out to be full-blown paranoid schizophrenia. Banged-up in one of the old rural asylums, he was put on mind-bending drugs which returned him to sanity. In recovery, he chooses not to cling to his delusions, but is interested rather in presenting them as curiosities. 2011-06-01 time of publication of the book, [-Chipmunkapublishing ltd-]"

Original Synopsis

"Madness' One Step Beyond... has a total of 180 pages which are papers from writer 'Terry Edwards'. One Step Beyond isn't the best album in the world - it's not even the best album by Madness. It is, however, a great record and an exceptional debut album -fully formed despite half the band still being in their teens - and it remains as exhilarating, inspiring and as much fun as when people first heard it nearly 30 years ago. Through extensive interviews with the band, as well as producers Clive Langer & Alan Winstanley, Terry Edwards tells the inside story of how Madness rose to be the most successful singles band of the 1980s in the UK charts. 2009-08-13 time of publication of the book, [-Bloomsbury Publishing USA-]"

Madness

Original Synopsis

"Madness has a total of 302 pages which are papers from writer 'Mary de Young'. “Madness” is, of course, personally experienced, but because of its intimate relationship to the sociocultural context, it is also socially constructed, culturally represented and socially controlled—all of which make it a topic rife for sociological analysis. Using a range of historical and contemporary textual material, this work exercises the sociological imagination to explore some of the most perplexing questions in the history of madness, including why some behaviors, thoughts and emotions are labeled mad while others are not; why they are labeled mad in one historical period and not another; why the label of mad is applied to some types of people and not others; by whom the label is applied, and with what consequences. 2010-07-26 time of publication of the book, [-McFarland-]"

Madness

Original Synopsis

"Madness has a total of 234 pages which are papers from writer 'Peter Morrall'. This book is an introduction to the uncertainties and incongruities about madness. It is aimed at all of those who are curious about this subject whether out of general inquisitiveness or because it is part of a formal course of study. Using case studies of real people in order to explain, humanise, and bring to life the subject, Peter Morrall critically analyses how madness has been and is understood, or perhaps misunderstood. By contrasting past and present people who have been perceived as mad and/or perceive themselves as mad, Morrall presents core ideas about madness and critiques their would-be robustness in explaining the specific madness of the person in question, as well as their general relevance to madness overall. Unlike many of its contemporaries, the book does not adhere to a perspective, but rather remains skeptical about the ideas of all who profess to understand madness, whether these emanate from sociology, psychology, psychotherapy, anthropology, ‘anti’ psychiatry, or the biological sciences of contemporary ‘scientific-psychiatry’. This book will inform and stimulate the thinking of the reader, and challenge those with preconceived ideas about madness. 2017-03-31 time of publication of the book, [-Routledge-]"
