Summary
Asylums incarcerate the 'mad' and exclude them from society. Gorizia, a grim mental asylum, right on the edge of Italy and miles from anywhere, was no exception. Yet, when a new director was appointed in 1961, everything changed. Drawing on the writings of Erving Goffman and Michel Foucault, and interested in experimental 'therapeutic communities' in the UK, the work of Frantz Fanon and the ideas linked to radical psychiatrists like Felix Guattari, Franco Basaglia was convinced that the entire asylum system was morally bankrupt. So he decided to abolish it. This study, of his revolutionary approach to psychiatry and mental health, provides a gripping account of one of the most influential psychiatrists of the 20th century. --
