Reviews

-This is an excellent book, profound, scholarly, thoughtful, and thought provoking.-

--Chase P. Kimball, Contemporary Psychology

-This book is an intellectual delight, and should be a 'must' for psychiatry residents.-

--Israel Zwerling, International Journal of Group Psychotherapy

-Students of clinical psychiatry . . . and practitioners will profit immensely from this book. . . . Teachers of psychiatry should read it to enrich their understanding of what they teach and how it relates to the broader world of psychiatry.-

--Robert Michels, Journal of Nervous and Mental Diseases

-[This] is one of the most eloquent monographs of which I am aware concerning pluralism in modern American psychiatry.-

--Michael H. Ebert, Psychiatry Resident, Volume IV

-Leston Havens has written a systematic history of psychiatry. We should read it closely, lest we engage in a farcical repetition of the past.-

--S. Nassir Ghaemi, The Jefferson Journal of Psychiatry

-One can only hope that the pluralism Havens espouses will survive the current predominance of descriptive-objective psychiatry.-

--Paul Hamburg, American Journal of Psychiatry

-The [solution] he offers is simple but ingenious. . . . The book itself constitutes in part what its subtitle describes--a movement of psychiatry from sects toward science. . . . [T]he author's future endeavors . . . should be eagerly awaited.-

--Emmanuel Cassimatis, Psychiatry
