Twelve papers on the abuse of psychiatry in the Soviet Union for political repression (persistent criticism of the present government is simply labeled "paranoia") and on torture in other countries: personal accounts, summaries by observers of these problems, discussions of the profession's responsibilities and ethical issues. Includes three valuable appendices: codes of ethics and declarations on abuse; names, addresses, and descriptions of organizations concerned with these problems; an extensive bibliography of selected literature. Highly recommended for all collections covering medical ethics and relations of medicine to politics.
