Few mental illness treatments are more reviled in the public mind than Electroconvulsive Shock Therapy. However, in reality, ECT is a safe and effective treatment for cases of clinical depression and catatonia that are unresponsive to drug therapy. Also, unlike drugs, ECT has relatively few side effects. The authors argue that it is time for this historically stigmatized procedure to be reevaluated. The authors make a strong case for greater professional and public attention to the procedure's benefits, offering historical coverage of ECT-related movements, legislation, public and practitioner sentiment and the introduction of competing treatments. This volume will not only garner the interest of mental health professionals, but will call on policy makers and ethicists to examine its arguments.

Jahrelang sorgte Kate Millett durch ihre politischen Aktivitäten, ihr öffentliches Bekenntnis zur weiblichen Homosexualität und ihre Bücher, die zu »Bibeln« der Feministinnen wurden, für Schlagzeilen. Auf dem Höhepunkt ihres Erfolges wurde sie von einer »seelischen Mißstimmung« erfaßt. Was dann folgte, war die Psychiatrierung eines Menschen: seine Zwangseinweisung in Kliniken, Selbstmordversuche – ein dreizehn Jahre lang andauerndes Martyrium. Kate Millett schildert in ergreifender Weise ihre Odyssee durch die Psychiatrie.Die amerikanische Presse urteilte: Seit Ken Keseys »Einer flog über das Kuckucksnest« hat es in der Literatur keinen solchen Aufschrei gegen psychiatrische Einrichtungen und Praktiken gegeben.
