Bias in Psychiatric Diagnosis is the first book about how gender, race, social class, age, physical disability, and sexual orientation affect the classification of human beings into psychiatric categories. This is a hot topic addressed to the public's right to know, especially because the negative consequences of psychiatric diagnosis range from loss of custody of a child to denial of health insurance and employment to removal of one's right to make decisions about one's legal affairs.

Paula J. Caplan, a clinical and research psychologist, is an Affiliate at Harvard University's DuBois Institute and a Fellow at the Women and Public Policy Program in Harvard's Kennedy School of Government. She is the author of The Myth of Women's Masochism, They Say You're Crazy: How the World's Most Powerful Psychiatrists Decide Who's Normal, and eight other books. Her articles, essays, and op-eds have appeared in both scholarly and popular publications.
