For centuries, scientists and society cast moral judgments on anyone deemed mentally ill, confining many to asylums. In Nobody`s Normal, anthropologist Roy Richard Grinker chronicles the progress and setbacks in the struggle against mental-illness stigma-from the eighteenth century into today`s high-tech economy. Nobody`s Normal argues that stigma is a social process that can be explained through cultural history, a process that began the moment we defined mental illness, that we learn from within our communities and that we ultimately have the power to change. Though the legacies of shame and secrecy are still with us today, Grinker writes that we are at the cusp of ending the marginalisation of the mentally ill. In the twenty-first century, mental illnesses are fast becoming a more accepted and visible part of human diversity. Grinker infuses the book with the personal history of his family`s four generations of involvement in psychiatry, including his grandfather`s analysis with Sigmund Freud, his daughter`s experience with autism and culminating in his research on neurodiversity. Drawing on cutting-edge science, historical archives and cross-cultural research in Africa and Asia, Grinker takes readers on an international journey to discover the origins of, and variances in, our cultural response to neurodiversity. Urgent, eye-opening and ultimately hopeful, Nobody`s Normal explains how we are transforming mental illness and offers a path to end the shadow of stigma.
