As its title suggests, this book traces the development of psychiatry from the ancient philosophers, through the days of Bedlam to the therapies available today. It profiles pioneers such as Freud and Jung, and charts the rise of treatments such as psychoanalysis, pharmacology and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. A section on diagnosis defines a range of conditions from autism to schizophrenia, while the concluding chapter examines psychiatry and the law.
