9780070358508: Wisdom, Madness and Folly, the Making of a Psychiatrist

Subtitled "The Making of a Psychiatrist, " this remarkable autobiography charts the subtle horrors of Laing's own upbringing in a resolutely "respectable" Scottish family in the 1940s. The author's lucid and witty prose offers some unforgettable personal experiences and a host of cultural, political and professional insights as he reflects on the growing unease he came to feel in his role as psychiatrist in a society "destroying itself by violence masquerading as love."
