Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is an historic work in the history of American psychiatry. We have never been in this place before." ―Lawrence O'Donnell

"There will not be a book published this fall more urgent, important, or controversial than The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump...profound, illuminating and discomforting" ―Bill Moyers

"The stand these psychiatrists are taking takes courage, and their conclusions are compelling." ―The Washington Post

“When I first heard about the conference that gave rise to this book at Yale, I was worried that a manifesto would come out with a diagnosis…. That is not what happened: what happened is a very thoughtful assessment based on lots of public data, which gives us a very clear way of thinking about the terrific vulnerabilities of our current president that elicits a duty to warn.” - Samuel Barondes, Professor Emeritus and Former Chair of Psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco

“This insightful collection … is a valuable primary source documenting the critical turning point when American psychiatry reassessed the ethics of restraining commentary on the mental health of public officials in light of the ‘duty to warn’ of imminent danger.” - Estelle Freedman, the Robinson Professor in U.S. History at Stanford University
