There’s a review by me of Ethan Watters’ book Crazy like us in the British Journal of Psychiatry this month. Unfortunately you’ll need a log-in to read it. It’s a book about the spread across the world of the American way of conceptualizing mental distress.
Edited version of my review: I liked it, although some other psychiatrists won’t.
For a summary of his arguments see Watters’ New York Times article.
Other (but less perceptive and not as well written) reviews of the book can be found at:
