This study, based on extensive use of eighteenth-century
newspapers, hospital registers and case notes, examines the
experience of suffering from nervous disease - a supposedly
upper-class malady. Beatty concludes that `nervousness' was a
legitimate medical diagnosis with a firm basis in
eighteenth-century medical theory.
