"This well-written history of mental retardation documents our changing perceptions of the 'feebleminded.' . . . This is must reading for anyone interested in this vital subject. Replete with shocking photographs and a 40-page reference list. A shattering document."--"Psychoanalytic BooksVom Verlag:
James W. Trent uses public documents, private letters, investigative reports, and rare photographs to explore our changing perceptions of mental retardation over the past 150 years. He contends 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.
