"[Thomas Szasz] presents a stinging indictment that dares to question conventional beliefs, and deconstructs modern psychiatry itself, arguing that it has no right to be dubbed a medical science. Coercion as Cure takes its title from Szasz’s observation that the defining features of psychiatry is its use of force—though sometimes psychiatrists deal with voluntary patients, all too often psychiatrists "diagnose" and "treat" people without their consent or against their clearly expressed wishes. A harshly critical assessment of the modern psychiatric medical system."
