Asylums, Treatment Centers, and Genetic Jails: A History of Minnesota's State Hospitals

Lunghezza: 333 pagine4 ore

Descrizione

In a time when those who were labeled “feeble-minded” and “defective” were locked away and forgotten by their relatives, when patients could be sterilized against their will, and treatments included inducing insulin shock and restraining patients by any means possible, state hospitals in Minnesota proliferated.
