A psychiatrist's travels through the history of mental illness - Who is 'mad'? Who is not? And who decides?In this fascinating new exploration of mental illness, Professor Brendan Kelly examines 'madness' in history and how we have responded to it over the centuries. We travel from the psychiatric institutions of India to Victorian scientific studies of the brain. Covering institutionalisation, lobotomy and the Nazis' 'Aktion T4', as well as Freud, psychoanalysis, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and neuroscience, Professor Kelly examines the shift from 'psychobabble' to 'neurobabble' in recent times.

In Search of Madness is an all-encompassing history of one of the most basic fears to haunt the human psyche, and it concludes with a passionate manifesto for change: four proposals to make mental health services more effective, accessible and just.
