This book has argued that you cannot understand a disease like obsessive-compulsive disorder without a thoroughgoing knowledge of the social, cultural, historical, anthropological, and political view of that entity. In effect, it is arguing for a so-called “biocultural” approach. A disease, like a person or a location, with a history that is more understandable than a disease without one. If this book has accomplished anything, it has been as another chapter in the ongoing history of obsessions written by people who are obsessed with obsession.
