Madness in the City of Magnificent Intentions Buchkatalog
Summers documents the history of Saint Elizabeths Hospital, a federal mental institution in Washington, DC, in relation to that city's African American community. He sheds light on the intersections of the historical process of racialization, medical and cultural understandings of insanity, the exercise of institutional power, and individual and collective agency.
