Schwarmerei

Posted by Miri Barak on June 15, 2003

I would like to know about this word. origin, usage, connotation, and is there a reason to use it in capital letters in the sentece:

"These two films together with the von Daniken Schwarmerei, may be regarded as the defining syndrome of a certain complex of obesessions very much at large in our time."

I understand the meaning of it as overemotional, but could it be a name of one of his works? or just a title to his book-movie "Chariot of the gods) to which he relates before.

Thank you very much
