Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

American started a grand experiment in the 1960s: deinstitutionalization of the mentally ill.  The consequences were very destructive: homelessness; a degradation of urban life; increases in violent crime rates; increasing death rates for the mentally ill.

"The story of a promising young man who develops schizophrenia, as told by his younger brother.  The personal narrative is mixed with an account of deinstitutionalization and the shocking decline of public psychiatric services in the United States.  The book is very well written and recounts the heroic efforts the mother to protect and get treatment for her mentally ill son.  Strongly recommended."  -- E. Fuller Torrye, MD, Executive Director, Stanley Medical Research Institute

About the Author

Clayton E. Cramer teaches history at the College of Western Idaho.  His work has been cited in two U.S. Supreme Court decisions as well as numerous decisions of lower federal and state courts.
