Mad, Bad And Sad : A History of Women and the Mind Doctors from 1800 to the Present, Paperback / softback Book

Mad, Bad And Sad : A History of Women and the Mind Doctors from 1800 to the Present Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Mad, bad and sad. From the depression suffered by Virginia Woolf and Sylvia Plath to the mental anguish and addictions of iconic beauties Zelda Fitzgerald and Marilyn Monroe.

From Freud and Jung and the radical breakthroughs of psychoanalysis to Lacan's construction of a modern movement and the new women-centred therapies.

This is the story of how we have understood mental disorders and extreme states of mind in women over the last two hundred years and how we conceive of them today, when more and more of our inner life and emotions have become a matter for medics and therapists.
