Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

"Arieti's account demonstrates an important principle of emotional dynamics: mental illness may provide in some individuals a constructive focus for noble and selfless actions," said LJ's reviewer of this portrait of Giuseppe Pardo, the congregational leader of Jews in Pisa, Italy, in 1944. Despite his position, he suffered from extreme phobias, including an absolute fear of animals, and he rarely strayed outdoors. Arieti, a psychologist, traces the last weeks of Pardo's life prior to his murder by the Reich. Pardo's story, however, is also a psychological treatise on a rare form of mental illness. (LJ 9/1/79)
