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)
