Publication date Amok is a novella by the Austrian author Stefan Zweig. First printed in the newspaper Neue Freie Presse in , Amok appeared shortly afterwards in the collection of novellas Amok: Novellas of a Passion. It deals with an extreme obsession, which leads the protagonist to sacrifice his professional and private life and, eventually, to commit suicide. The title of the novella comes from the Indonesian-origin term " amok ", which was uncommon in those days. It refers to people who attack the enemy in supposedly blind anger and try to kill the enemy as well as anyone else in their way, randomly, without taking into consideration any danger. In the novella, as in Moonbeam Alley , Zweig brings the altruistic concerns of the protagonist into the forefront. One night, during a walk on deck, he meets a man who, disturbed and scared, avoids any social contact on the ship.
