Destroying Sanctuary is part 2. Like Creating Sanctuary, this book is difficult to categorize. It is history, text, statistics, science, politics, anthropology, psychology, and story book. It is an excellent and accurate account of community mental health—a painful story of the dream never realized. There are coherent descriptions of the criminalization of people with mental illness, consequences of fundamentalist biological psychiatry, and the effects of reductionist behaviorism in children's services.
