The Power of Labelling illuminates a fundamental and intriguing dimension of social and political life. Striking cases from a range of policy contexts generate eyeopening analyses of labellings causes and consequences, uses and abuses, and of alternatives in thinking and relating. DES GASPER, INSTITUTE OF SOCIAL STUDIES, THE HAGUE The authors convincingly and often vividly explain how the unavoidable framings and labellings of the objects of policy secrete relations of power which can obscure as much as they reveal and often lead, in policy itself, to perverse outcomes. Their detail is riveting, their analyses persuasive, what they suggest realistic and deeply sensible. This immensely readab...
Young Malcolm Ward's father dies and he is betrayed into Mid-State Hospital by a cruel and greedy uncle. Malcolm is imprisoned on the Acute Violent and Forensic Ward where he discovers both art and the art of survival. Later, in the general hospital population, he fights to save a pretty young lady patient in his group therapy from a psychotic superintendent. This activates a system already clearly out to kill him. After he is blitzed by a series of unneeded shock treatments and sent to a back ward to die, he slowly recovers by painting and crafting sculpture. He falls in love with a devoted occupational therapist who reciprocates. And to make himself whole for her he escapes the hospital to find a new and truer life in a blazing finale of enlightened madness in New York's Greenwich Village.
Anxiety may be debilitating or stimulating; it can result in neurotic symptoms or in improved, heightened performance in an actor or athlete. It is something every human being has experienced. As Professor G. M. Carstairs points out in his Foreword: 'During the course of the twentieth century we have found it progressively easier to concede that we are all to often swayed by emotion rather than reason. We have come to recognize the symptoms of neurotically ill patients are only an exaggeration of experiences common to us all, and hence that the unraveling of the psychodynamics of neurosis can teach us more about ourselves'. Although Charles Rycroft is also a psychoanalyst, it is as a biologist that he has made this study of anxiety, the three basic responses to it - attack, flight or submission - and the obsessional, phobic and schizoid and hysterical defenses. Written in precise but everyday language, Anxiety and Neurosis is based on adult experiences rather than the speculative theories of infantile instinctual development. Its clarity and authority can only add to Dr Rycroft's established international reputation.

Einleitung: Die vorliegende Arbeit untersucht das M rchen auf seine Bez ge zur psychotherapeutischen Behandlung von Kindern. Terminologischen und etymologischen Aspekten der M rchenforschungen, die auf seine mittelhochdeutsche Abstammung zu dem Wort 'die M re' verweisen, folgen die Erkenntnisse L THIs, dessen Darstellungen die f nf gattungsspezifischen Merkmale des M rchens erfassen.
