New book — Politics Of The Mind: Marxism and Mental Distress

The book Politics Of The Mind: Marxism and Mental Distress written by Iain Ferguson could be of interest to h-madness readers. The abstract reads:

“Mental distress has become one of the key ‘public issues’ of the 21st century. According to the World Health Organization, depression currently affects 350 million people. Politics of the Mind: Marxism and Mental Distress looks at the link between the economic and political system under which we live – capitalism – and the enormously high levels of mental ill-health which we see in the world today. The book ends by looking ahead to a world driven not by the demands of profit but on based on meeting human needs – a world which the Marxist psychoanalyst Erich Fromm called ‘a sane society’.”
