In 1971 a German psychiatrist, Herr Dr. Wolfgang Huber, believed that the organic cause of most psychological disorders was simply capitalism. Not more and not less. This lead to the foundation of the SPK (Socialist Patients Collective), a group that strove for the total abolition of psychiatric practice. It began when Huber was sacked from his position in the University clinic because he refused to co-operate with the rest of the psychiatric department. This lead to his group therapy patients staging protests and eventually occupying the administration offices of the University. Eventually many of his patients, attempting to "turn Illness into a weapon", would form guerrilla cells and begin carry out attacks on the German state, eventually mergin into the Red Army Faction. This book compiles theses and principles, a chronology of events, essays, and an introduction by Jean-Paul Sartre. The first English translation of this seminal work.
