Editorial Reviews

Card catalog description
In this seminal work, Dr. Szasz examines the similarities between the
Inquisition and institutional psychiatry. His purpose is to show "that the
belief in mental illness and the social actions to which it leads have the same
moral implications and political consequences as had the belief in witchcraft
and the social actions to which it led."
