Later printing [1991 Thus]. From the cover; “The ‘madness’ of George III opened a Pandora’s box of troubles for the nation. Its true nature, however, has until now remained mysterious and misunderstood. Drawing upon extensive manuscript records of the royal physicians, as well as numerous eye-witness accounts, the authors provide a remarkably vivid picture of the patient, his treatments and management, of the epic struggle in the sickroom and the frictions and factions among his entourage. A gripping combination of medical, psychiatric and historical detection, this ground-breaking book shatters the popular image of ‘mad King George’ and charts the birth of modern psychiatry.
