Summary

From the authors of the bestseller Talking Back to Prozac comes the definitive work exposing how mental health agencies and the government are using invalid science for social control rather than addressing the decline of families, schools, and the communities as well as the escalation of racism and poverty.

In 1992, Dr. Peter Breggin and Ginger Ross Breggin inspired a national campaign against the proposed federal "Violence Initiative," which was aimed at identifying inner-city children with alleged defects that were said to make them more violent when they reach adulthood. Many of the research plans, which are still in operation, involve searching for a "violence gene," finding "biochemical imbalances," and intervening in the lives of schoolchildren with psychiatric drugs.

The Breggins describe this broad network of private and public programs--funded by the pharmaceutical industry as well as tax dollars. They include ongoing studies requiring young subjects to undergo frightening and dangerous spinal taps in the single-minded quest for a genetic or biological answer to the rising crime rate.
