About this book

The Psy complex governs us all by inscribing, diagnosing and interfering in our lives. This volume takes historical, sociological and psychological perspectives in exploring the complicity of patients, professions and governments with Psy and attempts by all three to constrain the industry's activities.

Reviews

“This is a scholarly contribution that exposes, not for the first time but in a way that is accessible and enjoyable and up to date, how psychiatry and psychology works, the material conditions under which it has been formed and the forms of resistance that might be elaborated to combat it.” (Professor Ian Parker, The Psychologist, Vol. 29 (5), May, 2016)
