Book chapter: “Psychotherapy of the Oppressed”: Anti-Imperialism and Psychoanalysis in Cold War Buenos Aires”, by Marco Ramo

The book chapter “Psychotherapy of the Oppressed”: Anti-Imperialism and Psychoanalysis in Cold War Buenos Aires” written by Marco Ramo and published in Anne-Emanuelle Birn and Raúl Necochea López (eds), Peripheral Nerve Health and Medicine in Cold War Latin America, might be of interest to h-madness readers.

In their introduction the editors describe Ramo’s contribution as follows: “Marco Ramos explains how Argentine psychiatrists engaged with First and Second World orientations toward their field and found both wanting. Peronist nationalism and leftward activism in the 1970s led psychiatrists in Buenos Aires to envision a future for their profession that was free from both U.S. and Soviet imperialism, among a populace that would stand in anticolonial solidarity with other Third World nations”.
