Institutional Care And the Mentally Handicapped - Andy AlaszewskiCroom Helm, 1986, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good+ - in Very Good DJ. DJ slightly ruffled along edges.
In this book, through the detailed case study of one mental handicap hospital, the author develops a general theory of institutions that has relevance not only for readers who want to understand the ways in which mental handicap hospitals operate, but also for readers who wish to understand the ways in which a range of institutions function. The book will thus interest a wide range of both academics, such as social scientists interested in institutions per se, and professional care-givers such as nurses, and teachers of mentally handicapped people.
