Shop on Barnes & Noble


Long before the age of reliable psychodiagnosis (the last 200 years), a primitive vocabulary sprung up to address odd and unconventional people within the body social. The history of psychiatry concerns efforts to identify, diagnose, and contain or treat these wild, mad, or insane people. This book starts with the Greeks 2,500 years ago and ends with a detailed look at current developments and trends.
