In late 1854, a doctor was called to a house in Hampstead, London. He found the patient - an elderly lady - scrunched up into a ball, a rictus of agony contorting her features. More remarkably, all... More > the moisture in her body seemed somehow to have been sucked out, leaving her dried up like a shrivelled husk. Of all the diseases that afflicted people in the nineteenth century, the pandemics of cholera were undoubtedly the most terrifying. Yet much of their horror could have been avoided for, at a comparatively early stage, their true nature and course had been uncovered. In one of the most extraordinary detective stories in the history of scientific discovery, an English doctor had patiently tracked down the disease, and unmasked it for what it was. This book, written for the general reader, tells how John Snow used a mixture of observation, logic and statistical evidence to go against the overwhelming weight of medical opinion and arrive at a correct understanding of the sickness.< Less

The Sex Worship and Symbolism of Primitive Races By Sanger Brown II

OUR knowledge of religion receives contributions from every quarter; even the student of mental diseases finds information that is of service to the student of religion. The reverse is equally true:... More > a knowledge of religion sheds light upon even the science of mental disorders. In this short book, a psychiatrist seeks in the study of one aspect of religious practice—the worship of the procreating power—to gain a clearer understanding of the forms taken by certain kinds of mental diseases. His theory is that we may expect diseased minds to reproduce, or return to expressions of desire customary and official in societies of lower culture. This is, as a matter of fact, less a theory than a statement of observed facts; of this, the reader of these pages, if familiar with certain mental disorders, may readily convince himself. But Doctor Brown’s intention is not merely, perhaps not primarily, to draw the attention of the Psychiatrist to a neglected source of information,...< Less
