Roman Base Metal Coins, Pt. 1: Roman Base Metal (Paperback, 4th Revised edition): Richard J. Plant Roman Base Metal Coins, Pt. 1: Roman Base Metal (Paperback, 4th Revised edition)

This price guide is a book for the collector rather than the scholar and, as such, has to be pocket-sized and inexpensive. It assumes that the reader will be more interested in assigning a coin to its proper period or Emperor than in working out the meaning of the design on the reverse and, therefore, whilst most of the usual obverse portraits and legends are illustrated, the reverses are dealt with in a much more cursory manner. As an aid to identification, all illustrations are as close to life-sized as possible. Remember, that often Roman coins are not completely circular like modern coins. Further, not all Roman base-metal coins are included. This is a selection of the available material, including the vast majority of the coins the collector is likely to encounter in 'real life'.

Written by one of the world's most distinguished historians of psychiatry, Psychiatry and Its Discontents provides a wide-ranging and critical perspective on the profession that dominates the treatment of mental illness. Andrew Scull traces the rise of the field, the midcentury hegemony of psychoanalytic methods, and the paradigm's decline with the ascendance of biological and pharmaceutical approaches to mental illness. The book's historical sweep is broad, ranging from the age of the asylum to the rise of psychopharmacology and the dubious triumphs of "community care." The essays in Psychiatry and Its Discontents provide a vivid and compelling portrait of the recurring crises of legitimacy experienced by "mad-doctors," as psychiatrists were once called, and illustrates the impact of psychiatry's ideas and interventions on the lives of those afflicted with mental illness.

In one single, elegant volume, it features over 300 iconic photographs and contains more than 1,200 concise yet fully detailed entries on all aspects of the subject.

This landmark publication, newly available in paperback, is the culmination of ten years of development and research. Working with an international expert panel of 150 consultants and 79 researchers, Nathalie Herschdorfer has triumphed in creating the first source of information for all scholars, practitioners and collectors of photography to turn to in the future.
