2017 Reprint of 1955 Edition.  Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software.  In this classic account of schizophrenia, Moore describes his struggle with madness.  “How does it feel to be treated as mad?  How do things look to you?  And, above all, how do you preserve hope and dignity and keep your identity in a hospital for the insane?  This unique and powerful book is authored by an ex-Marine and graduate student who suddenly finds himself stigmatized as a schizophrenic and committed to an insane asylum.  It lays bare the secrets and hiding places of the soul with a frankness that will astonish the reader.”  From Dust Jacket.  The “Mind in Chains” combines the interest of a study of schizophrenia with the fascination of a detective story.
