Great Photo Collection2012年5月5日に英国でレビュー済み
I bought this to do some preparation for a career in MH Nursing, you could say I became interested in knowing more about the past, and how people with mental illness were treated and so this book was purchased. It is a small book, but the information contained within was intriguing and made for great reading as well as being a good place to start further research. It has a fabulous selection of photos as well, and details on possible places you can visit.

A Well Presented Little Booklet2008年8月18日に英国でレビュー済み
This is a well presented booklet with many black and white and colour illustrations. As always with this series it leaves you wanting to know more about the subject. The author charts the building boom of asylums during the 19th century and the massive increase in the number of patients held within these new institutions. Building styles, life in an asylum and specialist asylums such as Broadmoor are briefly covered together with the demise and subsequent demolition of many of these excellent buildings in the 1980s and 1990s. I would have liked reference to a greater number of institutions, the same few tend to be often cited. A good bibliography and list of places to visit are provided.
A very useful overview of The Victorian Asylum2014年2月9日に英国でレビュー済み
A 56-page paperback book providing a detailed and well-illustrated account of the Victorian Asylum system, as well as its origins and the laws / jurisdiction that governed it. Readers of this book will gain an understanding of the earliest forms of care for the mentally ill at Bethlem (Bedlam) Hospital and subsequent developments in the design of asylum grounds and the non-physical management of patients as pioneered by the Tuke family of the York Retreat, and Dr Edward Charlesworth of the Lawn Hospital, Lincoln. This publication serves as an excellent starting point for further study.

More a history book of photos,I was sorry I bought it,I thought that the book would be a true tale of life in a Asylum but it shows of how many and where the Asylums were.
Budget is as Budget Does...2010年10月13日にアメリカ合衆国でレビュー済み
Behold the price and read all the specs! Then, do the diligent thing and stay away from this enticing number unless you plan to visit England and go old-crazy-house-hopping. If you have scholarly interest in this subject, this 60 page let-down will be utterly useless and leave you unsatisfied and angry at not having seen the cold water dips, shackles and mirrored rooms you were looking for.
