PSYCHOPATHIA SEXUALIS: The Case Histories
By Richard von Krafft-Ebing
Lustmurder, Necrophilia, Pederasty, Coprophilia, Fetishism, Bestiality, Transvestism, Transexuality, Self-Mutilation, Sado-Masochism, Exhibitionism;
All these and numerous other psycho-sexual disorders are detailed in the 237 case histories that make up this book - the legendary PSYCHOPATHIA SEXUALIS.
Unavailable for years, this landmark text on the early study of sexual mania and deviancy is presented in this current version - highlighting the cases chosen by Krafft-Ebing himself to appear in the 12th and final edition of the book, the culmination of his life's work compiled shortly before his death. Originally published in 1886 it was first to use the terms 'sadism' & 'masochism'.
An essential reference book on early medical and psychiatric diagnosis of sexual derangement and deviation - from well known cases like Jack the Ripper to the most obscure and extreme instances of perversion and sexual behavior known to psychiatrists and criminologists at the time.
