A Biography of Loneliness

The History of an Emotion

Fay Bound Alberti

  • The first book in English to specifically address the history of loneliness
  • A rich and important contribution to the histories of emotion, the body, social history and medical history
  • Identifies loneliness as a radically new phenomenon, dating from around 1800 in the UK, and potentially the industrialised West
  • An interdisciplinary work that uses literature, medical history, philosophy and religion, as well as attending to modern debates in healthcare and social policy reform
