Soviet Psychiatry: Pre-Emptive Resignation?
Nature. 1983 Feb 17; 301(5901): 559.
The Soviet All-Union Society of Neurologists and Psychiatrists has resigned from the World Psychiatric Association (WPA). The resignation was not unexpected in the face of a growing move by Western psychiatric associations to expel the Soviet society because of its refusal to cooperate with the WPA's committee to monitor political misuse of psychiatry.
