    Posted by Jill Anderson on April 23, 2015 at 19:00 0 Comments

    The Education of Radical Democracy explores why radical democracy is so necessary, difficult, and possible and why it is important to understand it as an educative activity .

    Psychiatry and the Business of Madness

    Posted by Jill Anderson on April 23, 2015 at 17:17 0 Comments

    Publisher's blurb: 'Psychiatry and the Business of Madness deconstructs psychiatric discourse and practice, exposes the self-interest at the core of the psychiatric/psychopharmacological enterprise, and demonstrates that psychiatry is epistemologically and ethically irredeemable.

Where was this ‘standard’ that I could honestly and confidently refer to that would make my courses make…
