Review "Their book deserves to be in the libraries of medical schools and schools of public health. Recommended."Choice "The case study structure of the book nicely reflects the authors' disciplinary interests and is justified by the burden of their argument--which turns on the complex and contingent nature of the historical and sociological processes through which diseases are defined and managed."Charles Rosenberg, author of Our Present Complaint: American Medicine, Then and Now "Through a series of fascinating cases, Grob and Horwitz show how the diagnostic and treatment rhetoric of medicine and psychiatry often far exceeds the scientific evidence. A significant contribution to our understanding of medicalization."Peter Conrad, Brandeis University, author of The Medicalization of Society: On the Transformation of Human Conditions into Treatable Disorders "This book is an outstanding collection of highly informative and well-written articles that aim to provide the reader with an understanding of the complexities of diagnosis and treatment in some important chronic diseases, from peptic ulcers to post-traumatic stress disorder. The authors bring together into one book a variety of medical conditions that have been discussed in different places, and do so in a format where they can be compared and their similarities and differences presented."William Rothstein University of Maryland, Baltimore County --This text refers to the edition. From the Inside Flap In Diagnosis, Therapy, and Evidence, Gerald N. Grob and Allan V. Horwitz employ historical and contemporary data and case studies, combining into one book a variety of medical and psychiatric conditions. They utilize case studies and examine tonsillectomy, cancer, heart disease, PTSD, anxiety, and depression, and identify differences between rhetoric and reality and the weaknesses in diagnosis and treatment. --This text refers to the edition.
