Editorial Reviews


“Jackie Orr is one of sociology’s most inventive theorists. Here in Panic Diaries she is brilliantly interdisciplinary, joining social theory with rigorous historical research, feminist criticism, and science studies to give us a genealogy of panic from its invention in nineteenth-century social science to its late-twentieth-century medicalization as panic disorder. And more, all of this is cut through with autobiographic experimental writing that makes your heart beat faster—a first-hand experience of panic. A book to read, a book to teach.”—Patricia Ticineto Clough, author of Autoaffection: Unconscious Thought in the Age of Technology

“Packed with original interpretations of historical material, textually innovative, and theoretically brilliant, this book is full of mind-blowing insights for anyone interested in the science and culture of panic.”—Emily Martin, author of The Woman in the Body: A Cultural Analysis of Reproduction

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I added this work to my collection prior to starting my graduate thesis, and I am so happy I did. Orr's work is wonderfully crafted, supported, and theorized. The book provides incredible history and insight into the social constructions of panic and mental illness, and how these topics weave into bigger social fabrics of scienceand technology.
