Beschreibung

Despite emancipation from the evils of enslavement in 1838, most people of African origin in the British West Indian colonies continued to suffer serious material deprivation and racial oppression. This book examines the management and treatment of those who became insane, in the period until the Great War.

"A richly-researched and wide-ranging study, that forces readers to think again about the history of psychiatry, about empire, and about its impact on the Caribbean." - James H. Mills, Professor of Modern History, Centre for the Social History Of Health and Healthcare (CSHHH) Glasgow, University of Strathclyde, UK
