Mind Fixers: Psychiatry’s Troubled Search for the Biology of Mental Illness

This book has been written by Anne Harrington. The publishers say:

“Anne Harrington explores psychiatry’s struggle to understand mental disorder in biomedical terms. Harrington shows how little the biological revolution had to do with breakthroughs in science and why the field has fallen into a state of crisis.

Mind Fixers recounts the past and present struggle to make mental illness a biological problem in order to lay the groundwork for creating a better future. …”
