My madness saved me:Madness & marriage of Virginia Woolf

Hardback, 30/01/2006, £83.99
£75.59
Looks at how Virginia Woolf, as well as her husband Leonard, used the concept of madness and the profession of psychiatry to manage and manipulate their own and each other's lives. The author interprets Virginia Woolf's life and work as expressions of her character, and her character as the "product" of her free will.

Manufacture of Madness: Comparative Study of the Inquisition and the Mental Health Movement

Paperback, 31/03/1997, £17.50
£15.75
Every age, labels others to a particular fate, such as the witch consigned to the fire. The priest has now been replaced by the psychiatrist and this text examines the role of medicine as a more insidious tyrant than religion, as it claims to be beneficial to both the patient and the commonwealth.
