Excerpt from book: III CHURCH VISITORS MY grandmother's old colonial home, Holiday's Point, so-called because of the many holidays that my grandfather had been accustomed to give his servants, was on the Nansemond River, in Nansemond County. The county came into existence in 1639, being first called Upper Norfolk. Its name was soon changed to Nansemum, spelled by Captain John Smith "Nansemond." The Dismal Swamp extends along its edge. Its county-seat is Suffolk, the burning of which I, as a child, have often heard described by Ole-Granny-Aggie, an eye-witness, while we would listen with bated breath, hair on end and nerves aquiver. "No, chillun," she would say, "jedgment day ain't agwine to be no mo' tur'ble to 'sperience dan de burnin' of we-all's county-town by dem furrin Britishers was, en de niggers en de white folks ain't agwine to be no skeerder den, nee- der." Then she would describe in her picturesque lingo the firing of the barrels of tar, pitch and turpentine which had been brought from the Dismal Swamp and placed upon the wharf awaiting shipping. The flames carried by a strong wind caught the grass of the dry marshes and spread to the town and the surrounding country and, as Granny-Aggie said, "de ma'shes en de river for miles looked and soun' lak one gre't blazin'-kindle-lighted sheet er steadified thunder and lightnin'—de magazines a 'splod- in'—de timbers a cracklin'—de barrels of tar, pitch en turkentine a bustin' en splungin' out dar fire—de sparks a flyin' en a lippin' lak de whole fundament had busted wide open en all de stars in de Heabens was a drappin' out, en ev'ybody runnin' lipperty-clip lak dey thunk de Debil was a movin' de Bad Place down to Nanse- mon'." Thus my infancy was surrounded by historic tales and the more ancient traditions that had descended fr...

manic depressive insanity and paranoia

The German psychiatrist Emil Kraepelin (1856-1926) is justly called "the father of modern psychiatry". He was the first to identify schizophrenia and manic-depression, and he pioneered the use of drugs to treat mental illness. He was also joint discoverer of Alzheimer's disease - which he named after his collaborator, Dr Alois Alzheimer. Kraepelin presented these and other discoveries in successive editions of his "Psychiatrie: Ein Lehrbuch" (definitive 8th edition also now available from Thoemmes Press). Much of this gigantic textbook can only be read in the original German; but parts of it were translated into English, and they had a very profound influence on the development of world psychiatry for the rest of the 20th century. "Manic-Depressive Insanity and Paranoia" (1921) was the last section of Kraepelin's great German textbook to be translated into English. Published in 1921, the book showed for the first time that psychotic depression could have alternating forms of mania and severe melancholy. In Kraepelin's view both manic-depression and dementia praecox (or "schizophrenia") were endogenous psychoses, originating in biological disorder; but he distinguished dementia praecox as deteriorating - that is, as having a very poor prognosis for recovery - from his new category of manic-depression, which was non-deteriorating. Kraepelin's classifications of these disorders have persisted into the 21st century, yet the books in which he first explained them to the English-speaking world have become very hard to find. This facsimile reprinting of "Manic-Depressive Insanity and Paranoia" should be of interest to researchers in academic and clinical psychiatry, and to those with a more general interest in the history of medicine.
