Summary This volume offers a psychology of human personality and behavior created as a function of the politics practiced by the social structure in which they are based. Simon demonstrates the dangers of the psychiatry and therapy industries from a variety of political, religious, and scientific perspectives. He argues that the mental health field, as currently dominated by psychiatric thinking entrenched in the "myths of mental illness," is acting as a social control agency and a force in the development of a totalitarian state.
