1 June 1967 : The Quiet Furies

This is a book of psychiatric case studies, published in 1967 and, to the best of my knowledge, never reprinted. Several of the case studies were made into thirty-minute, black & white films by the University of Michigan Television Center in 1969. The most interesting thing about this book, in my opinion, is the set of illustrations done by an artist named Edith Dines, about whom I can find nothing. They are imperfect but striking. Some of them are, as the kids say these days, "nightmare fuel". I present them here with the case names they accompanied serving as titles.

Case 1: The Invisible Sickness

Case 2: Gross Stress Reaction

Case 3: Obsessive-Compulsive Reaction

Case 4: Dissociative Reaction

("At this very moment it is possible that you—the reader—are in the throes of a dissociative reaction, have amnesia for some period of your past life, and have obliterated your previous identity to assume a new one.")

Case 5: Anxiety Reaction

Case 6: Phobic Reaction (Acrophobia)

Case 7: Musculoskeletal Reaction

Case 8: Sociopathic Personality Disturbance

Case 9: Antisocial Reaction

Case 10: Sexual Deviation

Case 11: Trait Disturbance (LSD)

Case 12: Addiction (Alcohol)

Case 13: Addiction (Drugs)

Case 14: Manic-Depressive Reaction

Case 15: Depressive Reaction

Case 16: Paranoid Type

Case 17: Chronic, Undifferentiated Type

Case 18: Chronic Brain Syndrome (Head Injury)

Case 19: Chronic Brain Syndrome (Syphilis)

Case 20: Chronic Brain Disorder (Senile)
