Note:

I do not necessary endorse any of the books I list.  I certainly have not read them all, and some I have never even seen.  The main criteria for inclusion in this bibliography are that a book should address some issues relevant to assessing the status of psychiatry and the mental health profession, or may be useful in making such an assessment.  Obviously, this list is not exhaustive, but I intend to keep it up to date and I am always ready to get suggestions for additions.

Deciding in which category a book should fall is in many cases difficult, since the categories I use are not mutually exclusive, and books can be hard to classify.  So inevitably some of the classifications I have made may seem arbitrary.  I may change the categories in the future, and I would be interested in suggestions for alternative categorizations.
