Review:

"It is a delight to have Geoffrey Cocks' Psychotherapy in the Third Reich in an updated edition with current materials and three new chapters.... Cocks' brilliant work of scholarship won wide acclaim both in Germany and in the U.S. for its bold re-delineation of the story of psychotherapy in Nazi Germany. It is wonderful to have this important book, which is a 'must' for all psychotherapists and social scientists sensitive to issues of ethics and politics, at last available in paperback."

--Peter Loewenberg, professor of history, UCLA

"Psychotherapy in the Third Reich is a fine piece of historical scholar-ship. ... [Cocks] has presented the reader with a substantial and significant piece of history.... [H]is account of the G6ring Institute provides a fascinating case study of the tangle of ideological conviction, personal and institutional self-interest, fiefdoms and patronage, greed and fear that--in the absence of clearly defined and securely established institutional structures--defined life in Nazi Germany."
