about

Boys in the West are being labeled as having psychiatric disorders, behavior problems and special educational needs, and are receiving psychiatric drugs in ever-greater numbers. In this book, Sami Timimi argues that this crisis reflects a fundamental ambivalence that Western culture has toward children that affects boys in particular. Using material from diverse sources, the author shows how Western society's political, social and economic value system works against families and children, and how positive alternatives can be found in non-Western traditions.
Sami Timimi is a consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist who works full time in the National Health Service in the United Kingdom.
