This volume collects together accounts, both professional and personal, of R D Laing by those who knew him. Some view Laing as important as Jung or Freud - a revolutionary of his time. His psychiatry work in the 1960s and 1970s was unconventional, even radical, and Laing the man evoked a strong response from those who came into contact with him. The book features conversations, letters, photographs and poetry, and contributors include Allen Ginsberg, Anthony Clare, Ralph Metzner and Van Morrison.
