Overview
Therapeutic Fascism addresses the history of extreme violence during World War Two in the Balkans from a completely novel perspective: through the prism of personal experience. It draws on a vast repository of unexplored sources - psychiatric patient case histories - and explores their content to recreate the social, political, and cultural history of the Second World War and its immediate aftermath in Yugoslavia. The volume also documents how the authoritarian regimes of the mid-twentieth century utilized psychiatric and psychoanalytic concepts and techniques in order to implement their core political projects. Finally, it traces tremendous intellectual changes within the psychiatric profession itself, which embarked on revisiting and re-defining some of its fundamental assumptions regarding human psychology under the weight of unprecedented violence and human suffering of the 1940s.
