Excellent!

by Larryinyc on Apr 26, 2007

A wonderful expose of the non-scientific underpinnings of the creation and revision of psychiatric diagnoses found in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual. The authors describe the socio-political context in which the development of certain categories of illnesses have occurred; and give some good insight into how the American Psychiatric Association has, in some cases, responded to political and social pressures more than scientific evidence. Anyone who has ever wondered about how psychiatrists decide what's mental health and what is mental illness should definitely read this book.
