Unavailable
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order

Description

This text uses public documents, private letters, investigative reports and photographs to explore changing perceptions of mental retardation over the past 150 years. It argues that the economic vulnerability of mentally retarded people (and their families), more than the claims made for their intellectual or social limitations, has determined their institutional treatment.
