New Arrivals, 2nd Floor

This book investigates the history of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and the way that medical communities, parents, educators, and politicians have understood the diagnosis and disorder since the 1950s. Smith traces the various explanations professionals of all kinds have given for hyperactive children and how biological causes and drug treatments came to be the most popular in the US. He also discusses the different rates of diagnosis and the different kinds of treatment popular in places outside of North America.
