About the Edition

Mount Misery is a prestigious facility set in the rolling green hills of New England, its country club atmosphere maintained by generous corporate contributions. Dr. Roy Basch (hero of The House of God) is lucky enough to train there - only to discover doctors caught up in the circus of competing psychiatric theories, and patients who are often there for one main reason: they"ve got good insurance. For Basch the practice of psychiatry soon becomes a nightmare in which psychiatrists compete with one another to find the best ways to reduce human beings to blubbering drug-addled pods, or incite them to an extreme where excessive rage is the only rational response, or tie them up in Freudian knots, And all the while, the doctors seem less interested in their patients" mental health than in a host of other things - managed care insurance money, drug company research grants and kickbacks, and their own professional advancement.
