First Edition. “For Szasz… mental illness is not a disease, whose nature is being elucidated by science; it is rather a myth, fabricated by psychiatrists for reasons of professional advancement and endorsed by society because it sanctions easy solutions for problem people.” [Porter Madness p.2]

Octavo. Original orange cloth in dust jacket. Lower board very slightly damped at the top corner with some bleed onto the jacket, but overall a very good copy.
