Summary
How are decisions made about who is normal? As a former consultant to those who construct the "bible of the mental-health professions," the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), Paula Caplan offers an insider's look at the process by which decisions about abnormality are made. A longtime specialist in teaching and writing about research methods, Caplan assesses the astonishing extent to which scientific methods and evidence are disregarded as the handbook is developed and revised
