Autobiography of a McGill University pioneer in transcultural psychiatry, the study and treatment of mental illness in different cultures. Dr. Prince studied native Yoruba healers in Nigeria, before coming to McGill in the 1950s to co-found this emerging field of medicine. Unbeknownst to Prince, this field was funded by the CIA, looking for new ways to control personality, during the Cold War. Prince also details early scientific experimentation with LSD, the transition from insulin and electro-shock therapy to major tranquilizers in Canadian medicine, and a lifelong scientific interest in religious experience, alongside many fascinating and scholarly detours in a remarkable 20th Century life. Carefully researched and referenced, with detailed notes and bibliography.
