Here Are Some Books Somewhat About Abolishing Involuntary Treatment

Here are some books that are related to abolishing involuntary treatment. 

Insanity: The Idea and Its Consequences is a book that you might like if you are anti-psychiatry.

Psychiatric Justice is a book that might interest you.

Law, Liberty, and Psychiatry: An Inquiry into the Social Uses of Mental Health Practices is another book that is possibly critical of the psychiatric establishment.

Abolish involuntary treatment. It is the right thing for society to do.

Are You Looking For Some Books By Szasz?

If you want to have a more truthful view of psychiatry, then perhaps you should buy some books by Dr. Thomas Szasz. Here are some of them.

The Myth of Mental Illness: Foundations of a Theory of Personal Conduct is a classic. It is perhaps the most well know book by Thomas Szasz.

Psychiatry: The Science of Lies is also a good book by Thomas Szasz. It is short and light.

Antipsychiatry: Quackery Squared is a book by Thomas Szasz that is against anti-psychiatry it seems.

The Manufacture of Madness: A Comparative Study of the Inquisition and the Mental Health Movement is a classic as well, it seems. It looks like it could be quite an interesting read.

The Myth of Psychotherapy: Mental Healing as Religion, Rhetoric, and Repression is perhaps in interesting book too. But it seems like Thomas Szasz himself has been a psychotherapist/psychoanalyst for a number of years. So how does that work... him practicing (if that is true) and then writing this book? I do not know.

Insanity: The Idea and Its Consequences is a book that Dr. Szasz has perhaps labeled as his favorite or the best of his books.

Pharmacracy: Medicine and Politics in America is a book that talks about the rule of doctors and those in the medical field, perhaps.

He has written more books than this. Dr. Thomas Szasz has been quite a prolific writer, it seems.
