Booknews
Browne's What asylums were, are, and ought to be, first published in 1837, is a classic portrayal of the horrors of the traditional British madhouse system contrasted with a powerful and ideologically- pointed description of the virtues of the reformed asylum. This new edition contains an extensive and thoroughly documented introductory essay by Scull examining the impact of the book on lunacy reform and the career of its author within the framework of the development of Victorian psychiatry as an organized profession.
