Rezensionen
"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)
