Sanity, Madness and the Family

Laing, R.D.; Esterson, A.
Publisher:  Pelican
Year Published:  1970   First Published:  1964
Pages:  282pp  
Resource Type:  Book

Laing and Esterson throw doubt on the view that schizophrenia is an illness with specific symptoms and its own pathology; they suggest rather than madness may largely be a social creation and its symptoms no more than the tortured ruses of a person struggled to live in an unlivable situation.
