Greenberg on Depression, Addiction, and the Brain

Drawing on ideas in the two books, Greenberg argues that there are strong monetary incentives to define various problems as illnesses that psychiatrists "cure" with drugs.

Kitabkhana
Kitabkhana is a literary blog site which, while it has a fairly strong South Asian focus, also looks at publishing in English generally. The site is quite idiosyncratic - it is light hearted and humourous, but nonetheless gives an interesting critique of many modern works of fiction and on bodies of work. The South Asian bias of the site can be seen in the number of Indian authors that feature on it, as well as in the references to South Asian phenomena and trends in the reviews of other works.

Members of the Russian intellectual classes increasingly compared themselves and their autocratic order to states and societies in the West. This comparison generated both a new sense of national consciousness and intense criticism of the existing order in Russia.
