Why are we so inclined to uncritically accept diagnoses which until quite recently we had never heard of? Why do psychomedical fads develop so easily? This volume provides answers to theses key-questions by examining the ways in which modern forms of discontent are created amd ”managed” by psychiatrists and psychologists.
