Madness in Buenos Aires
Patients, Psychiatrists and the Argentine State, 1880–1983
By Jonathan Ablard
Madness in Buenos Aires examines the interactions between psychiatrists, patients and their families, and the national state in modern Argentina. This book offers a fresh interpretation of the Argentine state’s relationship to modernity and social change during the twentieth century, while also examining the often contentious place of psychiatry in modern Argentina.Drawing
