Editorial Reviews

Review

"'The Fall of an Icon is an important addition to the world literature on psychiatry and psychoanalysis. Joel Paris's career has coincided with the decline of psychoanalysis in academe, and his heavily autobiographical style, along with his candour, self-disclosure, humour, and reflection, make this book very engaging. It is, among other things, a short history of twentieth-century psychiatry.' David Goldbloom, MD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Toronto, and Centre for Addiction and Mental Health"

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A very good overview of 20th century American psychiatry. Somewhat redundant at times, but the author is very well qualified by temperament and experience to provide an objective yet personal history of American psychiatry and its influences.
