"Middlefort's latest book will not disappoint the many scholars in varied disciplines who have eagerly awaited it. This is mature, sensitive scholarship . . . (that) succeeds brilliantly in exploring the social and intellectual dilemmas posed by early modern insanity. . . It belongs in every academic library."--History: Reviews of New Books
"This is the best book I have ever read on the border between cultural and social history in early modern Europe."--Thomas A. Brady, Jr., University of California, Berkeley
