Sarah Wise ☆ 3 review Inconvenient People Lunacy Liberty and the Mad Doctors in Victorian England review É 103 The 19th century saw a series of panics about sane individuals being locked away in lunatic asylums and public feeling often ran high against the rising 'alienist' or 'mad doctor' profession English liberty was seen to be under threat from a new class of men who would sign away freed. This book is one I read as it made the WellcomeBookPrize shortlist and I am doing a little reading project of some of the shortlisted books with my friend Elena I am actually very glad I did read this book as it was a very insightful read and it was a topic I didn t know too much about before reading this book but I did find it to be a bit of a mixed bag at times tooThis book is divided into uite a few different sections each on focuses on a case of an individual who is wrongfullybadly mistreated and sentenced to an asylum or single patient care in the house of a lunatic doctor I think the idea of working chronologically throughout the century starting with the earlier high profile cases and following through is a good one and the chronology of the book worked well for me I did find as the book went on that there were many similarities throughout the cases and I felt like there was actually uite a lot that could maybe have been summarisedcut as it wasn t all that essential to repeat or show a very slight difference between the casesThis book definitely had some very good insights on why things took so very long to change and why today we still struggle with identifying and treating mental health conditions but I just wish it had been a bit choppy and fast paced at times It was a solid overview that sometimes gave a bit too much detail but it made for some interesting tidbits and certainly kept me occupied whilst reading 3s overall
