Book News Annotation:

Thomas Szasz (emeritus, psychiatry, SUNY Upstate Medical U.) is known for his theories on the myth of mental illness and is recognized as the leading critic of the coercive interventions employed by the psychiatric establishment. Here, he argues that suicide is a basic human right and that the medical and psychiatric industry should not try to prevent it. He critiques contemporary anti-suicide policies and claims that suicide should not be managed as a medical problem or a disease. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
