KIRKUS REVIEW

A well integrated synopsis of the achievements of such pioneers in the field as Philippe Pinel, William Tuke and Chiarugi, all of whom instituted asylum reforms and the notion of kindness and care, and Charcot, Janet and Freud, who were responsible for revolutionary scientific reforms. Their innovations are woven into the spirit and ideals of the times in a most readable account for anyone interested in the development of mental health.
