Description - Insanity and the Lunatic Asylum in the Nineteenth Century by Serena Trowbridge

The nineteenth-century asylum was the scene of both terrible abuses and significant advancements in treatment and care. The essays in this collection look at the asylum from the perspective of the place itself - its architecture, funding and purpose - and at the experience of those who were sent there.
