This book chronicles the conceptual and methodological facets of psychiatry and medical psychology throughout history. There are no recent books covering so wide a time span. Many of the facets covered are pertinent to issues in general medicine, psychiatry, psychoanalysis, and the social sciences today. The divergent emphases and interpretations among some of the contributors point to the necessity for further exploration and analysis.

From the reviews: "The main audience for this new book is educators who want to be good scholars of intellectual history; the remaining readers are those who just want to deeply understand how present concepts of the mind were invented. This book, written ill a language of a high but approachable erudition, could serve as a knowledgeable guide to all of them in their journeys to a different level of understanding about how psychiatry actually works and thinks as a discipline. ... I enthusiastically recommend History of Psychiatry and Medical Psychology-it is refreshingly self-aware, an enjoyable read, and could provide hours of material for seminars with students to remind them of Santayana's mordant warning that those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." (Antolin C. Trinidad, MD, George Washington University, Washington, DC, JAMA, February 18, 2009-Vo1. 301, No. 7) "History of Psychiatry and Medical Psychology is one of the largest edited volumes on the history of psychiatry ... . The chapters cover the history of psychiatry in the United States, France, Germany, and ... the United Kingdom. ... a contribution that can help students and physicians to become acquainted with that history. ... For a reader who seeks a convenient overview of research in the history of psychiatry conducted during the last two decades, this volume could be handy." (Hans Pols, ISIS, Vol. 100 (2), 2009) "It devotes a substantial amount of space to a prolegomenon; an introductory chapter to the historical and methodological concerns, and adds an extremely useful and comprehensive annotated bibliography. ... would be worthy of publication in its own right, and its value is all the greater for the way in way in which it contextualizes the rest of the book. ... It places the philosophy of psychiatry centrally in both the practice and academic worlds ... . It is a very fine book." (Mark Welch, Metapsychology Online Reviews, September, 2009)
