Out Of Print... This book was Conollys first major contribution to psychiatry and the first in which the attempt was made to correlate the pheno-menology of mental illness with the normal functions of the mind and its eccentricities. Psychiatry was not yet a subject which students were taught and ConollyLondon Universitys first professor of medicinewrote it to help practitioners decide when to commit a patient to an asylumat that time the only way of getting treatment. He also described his plan for a nation-wide domiciliary psychiatric service, run by the state, and based on area mental hospitals. The editors in their introduction have written the first modern authoritative biographical study of Conolly using fresh source material and have brought to light new facts and facets of this famous Victorian physicians personality and career.
