The Wellcome Collection presents a new guide dedicated to sources on war, psychiatry and psychology, containing older stuff such as the observations by Charles McMoran Wilson of the new phenomenon of ‘shell shock’ on the Western Front during the Great War and material from Winnicott papers on the effects of wartime evacuation on children but also newer acquisitions such as the papers of Dicks relating to his involvement in ‘de-Nazification’ of Germany after the war.

  1. For those interested in the ideas of Wilfred Trotter, please see my book excerpt dealing with early Freudians: http://clarespark.com/2009/11/13/supermen-wanted-early-freudians-and-the-mob/. Trotter was the author of the hugely popular “Instincts of the Herd in Peace and War.”
