Kraepelin's works are made more accessible in English by the publication in 2002 of a 5-volume book of reprints of original translations. Together with his Memoirs (Kraepelin, 1987) and the translations of several of his papers published in History of Psychiatry, they present a fair, though still incomplete picture of Kraepelin's lifetime work.
