Hysteria, Paperback


Hysteria was once simultaneously physical illness, an illness without physical symptoms - and something unmistakably feminine.

Freud and Charcot diagnosed Hysteria as psychological trauma manifesting itself through the body - its cure resting between therapy and medicine.

Hysteria examines, too, some of the 'hysterical identifications' of our time, from dictatorship to pop culture.
