Summary
  • "The Decades Around 1900 were crucial in the evolution of modern medical and social sciences, and in the formation of various national health services systems. The modern fields of psychiatry and mental health care are located at the intersection of these spheres. There emerged concepts, practices, and institutions that marked responses to challenges posed by urbanization, industrialization, and the formation of the nation-state. These psychiatric responses were locally distinctive, and yet at the same time established influential models with an international impact. In spite of rising nationalism in Europe, the intellectual, institutional, and material resources that emerged in the various local and national contexts were rapidly observed to have had an impact beyond any national boundaries. In numerous ways, innovations were adopted and refashioned for the needs and purposes of new national and local systems." "International Relations in Psychiatry: Britain, Germany, and the United States to World War II brings together hitherto separate approaches from the social, political, and cultural history of medicine and health care and argues that modern psychiatry developed in a constant, though not always continuous, transfer of ideas, perceptions, and experts across national borders." ""The contributors to this volume demonstrate convincingly that any modern history of knowledge͠and more specifically that of scientific disciplines and medicine as practiced in hospitals and asylums͠needs to take forms of transnational communication into account."--Andreas Daum, author of Kennedy in Berlin (2008) and Popularizing Science in the Nineteenth Century (German, 2002)."
  • "'This is a pioneering effort to advance the historiography of one significant branch of medicine, psychiatry, beyond perspectives limited to any single nation ... The volume has the potential to affect both the history of medicine in general and the historiography of psychiatry in particular:͠Mitchell Ash, coeditor of Forced Migration and Scientific Change: Emigre German-Speaking Scientists and Scholars after 1933 (1996)"--Jacket
