Product description

Review

“I can recommend The Sedated Society as a stimulating case for the existence of overprescription and for the acknowledgment of the various harms associated with psychiatric medications. … Mental health clinicians, service-users, and researchers of all stripes will find the volume of interest.” (Daniel J. Dunleavy, metapsychology online reviews, metapsychology.mentalhelp.net, Vol. 22 (4), January, 2018)

Review

“The most authoritative and wide-ranging critique yet published of the global trend towards chemical management of psychological and social problems ... . Hard-hitting, scholarly and highly readable.” (Professor David Ingleby, Centre for Social Science and Global Health, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands)

“The Sedated Society is a provocative critique of the over-prescription psychiatric drugs, their minimal effectiveness, and the dangers they pose.  The authors are eminent experts and their conclusions are important and troubling. It should be required reading for all medical students.” (Prof Irving Kirsch, Associate Director at the Harvard Medical School, USA)

“A brilliant revelation of our drug-hooked world … .With admirable clarity and panache the contributors chart the incredible story of bad science, naivety and greed that has enslaved the lives of millions.” (Paul Flynn MP, Shadow Leader of the House of Commons)
