Abstract

Having been interviewed for this book, I anticipated its release with some interest. Mitzi Waltz has many publications to her name, with her latest offering attempting to chart social and medical narratives of autism through history. The early chapters of the book are dedicated to the appearance of autistic-like characteristics prior to the naming of autism. The book then goes on to explore the various early constructions of autism from psychoanalytic, behaviourist and cognitive traditions of clinical psychology.
