Description: Between 1985 and 1995, a staggering number of women were allegedly living with many distinct personalities within one psyche -- 40,000 new cases of MPD (Multiple Personality Disorder) were reported during this time. This brilliantly written chronicle of the rise and abrupt fall of a once-fashionable diagnosis exposes the misguided, often unscrupulous, therapists who used over-medication, hypnotic suggestion, and other means to brainwash patients into believing that they had MPD.

Acocella masterfully documents the ways in which feminists and recovered-memory advocates unwittingly aided profiteering entrepreneurs, and recounts the victories of the women who, after years of hospitalization and medication, fought back, winning legal suits and forcing MPD centers to close. This riveting story of fraud, betrayal, and psychological manipulation illuminates the nature of unethical trends and the ways in which the medical profession is dangerously influenced by social and political forces.
