Lectures on War Neuroses

£34.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

The horrific experiences of WWI soldiers, and the resulting psychological and psychiatric traumas, led to a much greater interest in the mental effects of warfare, during the interwar years (1918-1939). By 1941, when this little book was published, there was a market for advice, research, and general study of the subject. This lecture begins by stating that there are few differences between 'war' and 'peace' neuroses, but then concentrates on 'acute' and 'chronic' war neuroses, with an appendix on 'civilian war neuroses'. The text is written in a very accessible style, and would probably still be useful today when so many 'worried well' and 'young and stressed' are filling our doctors' surgeries.

Few details are available about the author, Dr T. A. Ross, but he was evidently a well-known figure in the field of analytical psychotherapy in the early part of the 20th century. Other books by him included " An Introduction to Analytical Psychotherapy" (1932) and "The Common Neuroses" (1923), both well-received when they were first published.

Our book is a first edition copy, and retains its (unclipped) dust jacket, which is rather battered and stained, with areas of loss and several tears, but still protecting the book beneath. Areas of possible water damage are mirrored by some bleeding of red dye from the covers on the inside of the jacket. The book itself is bound in red cloth with title etc in rather faded gilt on both front and spine, and is worn consistent with age & use - corners bumped (but not damaged), shelf wear to top & tail of spine, some fading and wear at the bottom of both covers, with a little damage to the cloth in both places. Inside, the binding is firm and all pages clean and only very lightly tanned. A previous owner's name is inscribed in ink on the front fep, dated December 1942.
