Editorial Reviews


"Thoroughly compelling. Neimeyer's research is superb, and his social history perspective has told us more than anyone about the origins of the Continental Army and the meanings soldiers attached to their service. This is a genuinely important book."-Mark Edward Ledner, co-author of "A Respectable Army: The Military Origins of the Republic" --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Essential Papers share anecdotal stories of unique characters and their circumstances, but then some of the writers try to globalize their "findings" to the general population as reasons for self destructive behavior. Since the papers were written in the early 20th century, heavy weight is given to Sigmund Freud's and Karl Menninger's theories. The papers do provide an insight into the "pop-psychology" of the past, and give the reader a better understanding on how far the field of psychiatry has come over the past 100 years. The book's finale is a crown jewel written by Edwin Shneidman, "Suicide as Psychache" wherein the three components of prevention arise: reduce the pain, provide a truncated time for endurance, and offer coping resources.
