From Asylum To Prison (eBook)
Deinstitutionalization And The Rise Of Mass Incarceration After 1945
de Anne E. Parsons
Sobre o livro
To many, asylums are a relic of a bygone era. State governments took steps between 1950 and 1990 to minimize the involuntary confinement of people in psychiatric hospitals, and many mental health facilities closed down. Yet, as Anne Parsons reveals, the asylum did not die during deinstitutionalization. Instead, it returned in the modern prison industrial complex.
