    Voices from the Aslyum PDF ´ Voices from ePUB Ý voices mobile, from kindle, aslyum ebok, Voices from kindle, Voices from the Aslyum eBookI was expecting something from the patients themselves instead this book consists of intake information of patients and the author's research on what became of them Because of this it felt like the patients were very othered by both staff writing the records and the author While there isn't the leery voyeuristic tone towards patients as you see in some books about the history of mental healthcare there was a condescending paternalistic feeling and a fair bit of ableist language like deaf and dmb that I found discomforting Overall not one I would recommend
