  • Psychiatrists Under Attack: The Rebellious Dr. Szasz

    The most outspoken critic of modern psychiatric methods is Thomas S. Szasz, a practicing psychoanalyst and author of several controversial books about the practices of his colleagues. Edwin M. Schur, a sociologist and Yale-trained lawyer, who teaches at Tufts University, assesses Dr. Szasz's criticisms, including the charge that many psychiatrists willfully abuse the constitutional rights of their patients. Mr. Schur is the author of CRIME WITHOUT VICTIMS and other books.
