Be My Friend - http://www.myspace.com/psychtruth Coercion as Cure: A Critical History of Psychiatry http://www.amazon.com/Coercion-Cure-Critical-History-Psychiatry/dp/0765803798 Psychiatry, Coercion as Cure, Thomas Szasz Book Review Dr. Breeding reviews the book, "Coercion as Cure: A Critical History of Psychiatry" by psychiatrist, Thomas S. Szasz. "Nearly all books on the history of psychiatry have been written by people who wholeheartedly believe in the reality of `mental illness.' At long last we have a history of psychiatry by the very man who nearly fifty years ago declared mental illness to be a myth. Stripping away centuries of self-serving propaganda written by psychiatry's acolytes, Dr. Thomas Szasz gives us a radically new look at the history of the world's most dangerous political religions. From the eighteenth century's `trade in lunacy' to the nineteenth century's `insane asylums' to the twentieth century's `snake pits' to the twenty-first century's `outpatient commitment,' Szasz gives us a radically different perspective on the major episodes in the history of psychiatry. After Coercion as Cure, we will never be able to look at psychiatry again as a legitimate claimant to the throne of medical science."
