In this volume, Shorter presents a revealing account of why psychiatry is 'losing ground' in the struggle to treat depression. It focuses on an unexpected villain - the FDA, the very agency charged with ensuring drug safety and effectiveness. Shorter describes how the FDA permits companies to test new products only against placebo.
