Description - Shrinking History by David E. Stannard
A study of the burgeoning field of psychohistory - from Freud, its primogenitor, to its present-day academic practitioners - this work argues that little, if any, psychohistory is good history. The author systematically points out the pitfalls, sheer irrationality and ultimately ahistorical nature of this mode of historical inquiry.
