Description

Books in this set consider the implications for society, and how society should respond to mental health issues. This comprehensive set covers not only the history of mental health care and institutions, but also the development of psychiatric social work and mental health policy. 'Mental Health and Social Policy, 1945-1959' and 'Psychiatric Social Work in Great Britain (1939-1962)' remain important texts for anyone involved in mental health research.

About the Series

International Library of Sociology

The International Library of Sociology (ILS) is the most important series of books on sociology ever published. Founded in the 1940s by Karl Mannheim, the series became the forum for pioneering research and theory, marked by comparative approaches and the identification of new directions in sociology, publishing major figures in Anglo-American and European sociology, from Durkheim and Weber to Parsons and Gouldner, and from Ossowski and Klein to Jasanoff and Walby.

Its new editors, John Holmwood (University of Nottingham, UK) and Vineeta Sinha (National University of Singapore), plan to develop the series as a truly global project, reflecting new directions and contributions outside its traditional centres, and connecting with the original aim of the series to produce sociological knowledge that addresses pressing global social problems and supports democratic debate.
