Harry Oosterhuis has done historians a great service by writing this study of Richard von Krafft-Ebing. He both places Krafft-Ebing in his professional and social contexts, and pays close attention to the case histories which Krafft-Ebing employed in his multi-editioned 'Psychopathia sexualis' (1st ed., 1886). This is a brilliant book, and a must for any historian of sexuality and sexology.
