The Untamed Tongue: A Dissenting Dictionary

Open Court, 1990 - 272 Seiten
Szasz attacks the sacred cows of contemporary American society. In his acerbic and aphoristic style he rails against the hypocrisy and fraudulence of the futile and murderous war against drugs, the sordid and often self-seeking practices of psychotherapy and the atrocities of psychiatry.
