Product description


From the reviews:

“The author has produced a very readable and honest account of this important subject. … Psychiatrists, neurosurgeons, psychologists, medical/psychiatric historians, and other mental health practitioners would this book of interest. … This is a superb book on the history and current state of this controversial procedure and a welcome addition to the psychiatric literature. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in psychiatry and psychiatric treatments.” (Michael Joel Schrift, Doody’s Book Reviews, May, 2014)


« I like the book as it provides a very nice overview of psycho- surgery in general. It is easy to understand for any (para)medical practitioner, but even specialists in the field may learn new things. They may also enjoy looking the well-known and less-known figures which illustrate the book. »
Professor Bart Nuttin

« Reading this book is like reading an anthology, or rather an encyclopaedia of the field of psychiatric surgery, spanning more than a century. This is a work with an unprecedented degree of erudition and knowledge, and the subject is presented in a didactic, scholar, and scientific manner, and is extensively referenced and illustrated. If only one book is to be read by anybody interested in this field, regardless of specialty, this is The Book to read. »
Professor Marwan Hariz
