Psychiatry a Hundred Years Ago: With Comments on the Problems of To-day. The Presidential Address at the Annual Meeting of the Medico-Psychological Association of Great Britain and Ireland, held at York, July 22nd, 1919

  • Bedford Pierce (a1)
Extract

The theme of the address I am about to give—if anything so discursive can be said to have a theme—is the medical treatment of the insane during the period of transition and reform at the end of the eighteenth and beginning of the nineteenth centuries.
