This is the first book to investigate the actual experience of paranoia and to demonstrate that under the right conditions--drugs or deprivation, for example--anyone can be driven into that state. The paranoid inhabits a different realm of being, one that tilts the world ever so slightly. Delusions and hallucinations feed on each other, flourishing with amazing speed. In a dozen case studies, Dr. Siegel follows his patients into the shadow lands where paranoia flourishes--drug addiction, prison, organized crime, and terrorism. He introduces us to mild cases where there is only a vague sense that something is out there stalking, to those with apocalyptic visions so intense that they shake the foundations of an entire community.--From publisher description."@en ;
