We not only learnrnmuch about the nature, emergence and consequencesrnof this important stream of popular ‘liberationrnpsychotherapy’ but about American culturerngenerally, in its abiding romance with therapeuticrnself-help. This is an outstanding work, onerndemonstrating originality, careful analysis andrndeep theoretical and moral reflection. It fully meritsrna place alongside the great works of PhiliprnRieff and Christopher Lasch.”rn—James Davison Hunter, Kenan professor ofrnsociology, University of Virginiarn”John Rice, rather than coming to praise or defendrnco-dependency, actually tries to understandrnits appeal. The result is a clear-headed examplernof a sociological investigation as it is supposedrnto be. A Disease of One’s Own is a book wellrnworth reading.”rn—Alan Wolfe, Boston UniversityrnISBN: 1-56000-241-7 (cloth) 326 pp. $39.95/£25.95rnOrder from your bookstore or direct from thernpublisher.
