Summary
A lot is written about psychiatry and the things it deals with, but very little that describes psychiatry itself. Why should there be such a need? There isn't a raft of books explaining all the other branches of medicine
Summary
Seeks to define the field of psychiatry, from its historical development through discussions on where it helps and relieves suffering to where it interferes and is used as an instrument for social control
