Abstract: Communication amongst medical specialists helps display
the tensions between localism and transnationalisation. Some
sampling of psychiatric journals provides one framework for
the history of psychiatry and, to some extent, the history of
medicine in general in the twentieth century. After World War II,
extreme national isolation of psychiatric communities gave way to
transnationalisation, especially in the 1980s, when a remarkable
switch to English-language communication became obvious. Various
psychiatric communities used the new universal language, not so much
as victims of Americanisation, as to gain general professional
and to participate in and adapt to modernisation.
