Lunatic AUTHOR Edward S. Gleason Summary Ë eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Hemisphere This haunted Gothic structure was the end of the line for West Virginia's insane for 150 years There are nine acres of. The book is written a bit like an emotional textbook The chapters are easy to follow and the included photos really help transport you to that timeThe book truly covers the rise and fall of an American asylum I didn t realize how mistreated the mentally ill were until reading this book The introduction of a treatment facility was radical but paled in comparison to the lives some of the insane were living chained in their family basements or atticsHowever the radical treatments and learning curve of doctors for how to treat the clinically insane was troubling to say the least I am saddened to know that the same place I took a tour last year is the same place that horrific experiments and lobotomies were performed with very little care for the outcome so long as the patients were docile and easier to controlI am thrilled to see the advancements in the field and they are evident in this book There are also a lot of war information I didn t realize how much action the hospital grounds saw during the civil war The stories and anecdotes were a rich addition to the bookI can t wait to pass this along to all of my reader friends
