Review:

'The history of emotion, and its earlier cognate 'the passions', offer rich challenges to cultural analysts, as this volume abundantly shows. The essays take us through intricate articulations with successive medical systems, from humouralism and temperaments to experimental psychology and its laboratory protocols. For the Nineteenth-century, we are introduced to the distress of postpuerperal insanity, the evocation of pity in humanitarian campaigns, and the polemics of creativity and callousness around animal experimentation. We also gain access to the intimacies of medical consultation in the Twentieth-century - for the ways in which patients responded to their doctors, and the uses which psychiatrists made of their own reactions to patients. It is a volume which speaks to medicine, psychology and cultural studies as well as to the histories of science and the clinic, and one that can feed much-needed interactions.' - Professor John V. Pickstone, University of Manchester, UK

'[A] tightly edited, well-integrated collection, exploring important and original subject matter from many different, yet complementary angles. Its cumulative impact is much more than the sum of its parts...this is a very valuable collection.' - Malcolm Nicolson, Centre for the History of Medicine, University of Glasgow, UK

'...the editor should be complimented for bringing together a series of fascinating enquiries into these most vexing of human states.' - Jonathan Sawday, Medical History
