Pressestimmen In this thoughtful and critical book Mayes and colleagues provide answers where there is evidence for them and makes it clear why some questions cannot be answered with what we know today. Parents teachers and doctors will be the wiser for reading it.--Leon Eisenberg M.D. Harvard Medical SchoolRick Mayes and colleagues have made a brilliant scholarly and unique contribution to the literature on ADHD. In a critical but balanced approach the authors fill the gaps in understanding left by narrow and one-sided debates. A must-read for anyone interested in ADHD.--C. Keith Conners Ph.D. Duke University Medical CenterThere are likely more journal articles and books on the topic of ADHD than there are children with the disorder but this work indeed is a rare find. Thoughtful comprehensive and carefully referenced this seminal work manages to weave an important tapestry of mental health services practice in this nation public policy and the unique challenges in providing mental health care to children and adolescents.--Ronald T. Brown Dean Temple University Health Sciences CenterWithout pulling any punches the authors take on the many diverging opinions about attention deficits and hyperactivity in today's world skillfully blending perspectives from science clinical practice and policy helping readers sort out fact from fiction in the overly heated media coverage. Analyzing a real condition but one steeped in the loaded crossfire between big pharma media frenzy biology vs. culture and the very nature of childhood itself Medicating Children is a beacon of reason.--Stephen P. Hinshaw Ph.D. University of California BerkeleyAt last a balanced and comprehensive account of the history science treatment and controversy of ADHD. Medicating Children is scholarly but very readable. This unique book will be my first reading recommendation to anyone interested in ADHD.--Judith L. Rapoport M.D. Chief Child Psychiatry Branch NIMHMedicating Children is superb a tour de force. If you want the most balanced informed and sane view on the use of medication in children who have ADHD read this book.--Edward Hallowell M.D. author of Delivered from Distraction and Driven to DistractionMayes Bagwell and Erkulwater have both written a brilliant book and performed a great public service. Medicating Children should be required reading for anyone wishing to understand the complex and complicating legal medical historical economic and political frameworks of attention deficit disorder in the United States. This measured thoughtful and elegantly written volume is a scholarly tour de force.--Howard Markel M.D. Ph.D. Director of the Center for the History of Medicine and Professor of Pediatrics and Communicable Diseases University of MichiganWith clarity and compassionate insight this remarkable book explains why ADHD becomes the most commonly diagnosed psychological disorder in children and how millions of children came to be treated with stimulants. But Medicating Children does something more: It brilliantly describes a paradigm shift in thinking about mental disorders--from a psychodynamic to a biological view--and details the converging factors--including shifts in disability law welfare policy and research funding--that opened the door to the greatly expanded use of psychotropic drugs to treat not only ADHD but childhood depression and other mental disorders in the young as well.--Steven Mintz Columbia University author of Huck's Raft: A History of American ChildhoodStart with one of the most intriguing socio-medical puzzles of our time: Why the explosion in prescription stimulants for children at a time when we're supposedly fighting a war on substance abuse? Add a hefty dose of intellectual curiosity and mix with three well-tempered analytical minds. Pour into elegant narrative prose. Voilà! A broad-ranging comprehensive and wise interpretation of mental health politics policy and scientific culture. And like all good works of art this one reveals the world in a grain of sand.--Deborah Stone author of The Samaritan's Dilemma: Should Government Help Your Neighbor?This book reminds us that a vast array of social and political factors will affect decisions regarding the medicating of children. Medications might be approved by the FDA but many years of public debate will probably be required before the use of these medications is considered acceptable.-- (07/30/2009) Synopsis Why and how did ADHD become the most commonly diagnosed mental disorder among children and adolescents as well as one of the most controversial? Stimulant medication had been used to treat excessively hyperactive children since the 1950s. And the behaviors that today might lead to an ADHD diagnosis had been observed since the early 1930s as 'organic drivenness' and then by various other names throughout the decades.Rick Mayes and his coauthors argue that a unique alignment of social and economic trends and incentives converged in the early 1990s with greater scientific knowledge to make ADHD the most prevalent pediatric mental disorder. New movements advocating for the rights of children and the disabled and a massive increase in Medicaid spending on psychotropic drugs all contributed to the dramatic spike in ADHD diagnoses and stimulant use.'Medicating Children' is unique in that it integrates analyses of the clinical political historical educational social economic and legal aspects of ADHD and stimulant pharmacotherapy.Thus it will be invaluable to educators clinicians parents and policymakers all of whom are trying to determine what is in the best interest of millions of children.
