Summary:
 The mentally ill might not go to Shutter Island or the Cuckoo's Nest, but that doesn't mean they're getting the best care they can.  With extensive, unique ethnographic research at two community-based organizations that provide the bulk of such care, Managing Madness in the Community lays bare the true nature, effects, and costs of our fragmented mental health system and provides a useful broad framework that will help researchers and policymakers understand the key forces influencing the system today.
