This book revisits the heyday of psychosurgery in America in the 1940s and 1950s when tens of thousands of patients were given brain operations in the hope of relieving mental illness. By exploring the history of psychiatry as a discipline and a medical specialty, the book accounts for why so many trusted and caring physicians could reasonably believe that the procedure benefited their patients. The book uses the story of psychosurgery to challenge our usual models of how physicians decide that a treatment works.
