Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1998, Vol 43(4), 281-282. The reviewer states that this book (see record 1997-97206-000) provides a one-volume social history that describes psychiatry from the early 18th century when the mentally ill were shackled in poorhouses to the present era of multibillion dollar pharmaceutical “market share.” The reviewer closes the review by saying Shorter's book is a gem, an extraordinary gift to the field.
