New Faces of Madness Publication date : November 1, 1993

The main task of psychiatrists is to cure the wanderings of the mind, those mental disorders currently designated as psychoses: delirium and hallucinations, dementia and withdrawal. This book explains what these diseases are, their origin, how to cure them, what is the place and function of the hospital today, what is the legal and social role of psychiatrists.
