The Psychiatric Persuasion:
Knowledge, Gender, and Power in Modern America
Elizabeth Lunbeck

Book Description | Table of Contents

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"Elizabeth Lunbeck seeks to probe the dynamics and underlying cultural assumptions of psychiatric thought and practice. In a significant way, she lays the foundation for an understanding of the subsequent emergence of psychodynamic and psychoanalytic psychiatry. Not only will her book be of interest to social and cultural historians, but it will also find an audience among those concerned with gender-relates issues."--Gerald N. Grob, Rutgers University
