MELANCHOLIA AND DEPRESSION From Hippocratic Times to Modern Times. By Stanley W. Jackson. Dr. Jackson's chronicle of these beliefs and their consequences is this book's most important contribution. 441 pp. New Haven: Yale University Press. One can only describe many of the causative theories of depression as creative. They have ranged from humoral imbalances to religious possession to sluggish circulation of blood in the brain to psychological predisposition resulting from adverse childhood experience to abnormalities in chemical neurotransmitter function.

With this opus, Stanley W. He has also given us an indication of his love of labor. He writes that his professional lifetime of efforts to ameliorate the distress of various sufferers, many of them depressed, gradually joined with his associated interest in the history of medicine and psychiatry. Together, these became focused on tracing the consistency and co-herence in the cluster of symptoms and signs referred to as melancholia and depression over a time frame of approximately twenty-five hundred years (pp. ix-x). So the journey begins.

Jackson's text is an excellent text covering the history of melancholia and depression. It is most likely to be of interest to students of psychology and clinical social work. It traces the way our society has looked at depression and melancholia over the centuries. This is important to us because it forms part of the context in which we view depression and melancholia. Some of the metaphors we use in modern language to describe melancholia come from the concept of the four humours of ancient Greek medical thought. It goes beyond ancient history, and tracks depression through medical and literature of various periods. The coverage of Emil Kraepelin and Eugen Bleuler was excellent.
If your involvement in psychology is limited to reading "Psychology Today" magazine, this may not be for you. I find this text does not devote enough space in the discussion of 20th century theories of and treatments for depression and melancholia. I would prefer more space to a discussion of A. T. Beck and Martin E. P. Seligman's views of depression. Because I am a student of "attribution theory," I would have liked to see a fuller development of the work Seligman started and which was more fully developed by Lyn Abramson and associates. Modern psychiatry tends to view depression in terms as an imbalance of certain neurotransmitters in the brain and treats it with antidepressants including MAO inhibitors and the more modern selective seratonin reuptake inhibitors such as Prozac, Zoloft, and Paxil, to name a few. I would also have been happier with more full discussion of psychopharmacological intervention.

Gives the history of the mental health disorder. It was exactly what I needed for the class I am taking. I had to write a paper on the history of depression, and the book was very helpful.
