And to bring this up to date....

Thank you for covering a topic so often ignored by the mainstream media. This is a good history, but to bring it up to date, why not write about the current use of ECT? Or the treatment of psych patients in emergency wards? Or the overprescription of psychiatric drugs? In her two-part series in The New York Review of Books (June-July 2011), Marcia Angell covers the latter topic. In his masterpieces of investigative reporting, "Mad in America" and Anatomy of An Epidemic, the American journalist, Robert Whitaker, shows how the eugenics movement still informs the treatment of our most vulnerable citizens.
