Storming Bedlam: Madness, Utopia and Revolt with Sasha Warren

We're excited to welcome Sasha Warren to the store for an event in celebration of his book Storming Bedlam: Madness, Utopia and Revolt. The contemporary world is oversaturated with new psychiatric programs, methods, and reforms promising to address any number of "crises" in mental health care. When they fail, alternatives to the alternatives simply pile up and seem to lead nowhere. In Storming Bedlam: Madness, Utopia, and Revolt, Sasha Warren suggests that the intense contradictions that animate psychiatric care can only be conceptualized by situating its technical composition in its actual social, political, and economic conditions.
