A collection of interviews with 19 people who have shaped British psychiatry over the last four decades. Woven into the text are their personal accounts of psychiatric practice, how it has changed, how they themselves changed it, and the personalities of their eminent contemporaries. The result is a unique oral history of mental health professionals and services since the inception of the National Health Service.
