Summary
For centuries, scientists and society cast moral judgments on anyone deemed mentally ill, confining many to asylums. Here, anthropologist Roy Richard Grinker chronicles the progress and setbacks in the struggle against mental-illness stigma from the eighteenth century, through America's major wars, and into today's high-tech economy. Grinker infuses the book with the personal history of his family's four generations of involvement in psychiatry, including his grandfather's analysis with Sigmund Freud, his own daughter's experience with autism, and culminating in his research on neurodiversity. Drawing on cutting-edge science, historical archives, and cross-cultural research in Africa and Asia, Nobody's Normal explains how we are transforming mental illness and offers a path to end the shadow of stigma
