Publisher's Summary

In this hour, we look at anxiety and mental illness, the globalization of the American psyche. Patricia Pearson is the author of A Brief History of Anxiety...Yours and Mine. She tells Anne Strainchamps why she thinks Americans are so anxious.
Next, Ethan Watters has just written a book called Crazy Like Us: The Globalization of the American Psyche. He argues that American versions of depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and eating disorders are spreading around the world. He tells Steve Paulson that American has a big influence on how people perceive mental illness.
Then, Tufts Medical School psychiatrist Daniel Carlat believes psychiatry is in crisis. He tells Steve Paulson about his book Unhinged: The Trouble with Psychiatry – A Doctor's Revelations about a Profession in Crisis.
Finally, Brian Kane teaches Music Theory at Yale, and is fascinated by the role that sound plays in Franz Kafka's fiction. He tells Jim Fleming about a presentation he gave last year at Columbia. It was all about "acousmatic sound." [Broadcast Date: June 22, 2011]
