About this book

'Psychiatry and Empire' brings together scholars in the History of Medicine and Colonialism to explore questions of race, gender and power relations in former colonial states across Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and the Pacific. The volume advances our understanding of the rise of modern psychiatry as it collided with the psychology of colonial rule.

Reviews

'Psychiatry and Empire is a valuable contribution to the history of psychiatry and to understanding current issues of cultural difference in mental health care.' Tony O'Brien, Metapsychology online reviews

'The book includes ten chapters, each of which is impressive in its own right and which collectively add considerable nuance to our understanding of the colonial world as well as the practice and intellectual influence of psychiatry within it. Class, gender and race all emerge as important and interrelated themes that the individual authors handle with great sensitivity. The chapters, individually and collectively, deal with powerful themes and the writing is particularly fluent and persuasive.' - Pamela Dale, History.Transnational
