A few weeks ago we received a copy of Jacyna and Casper’s new book The Neurological Patient in History. One the of the Wellcome Unit members, Lynsey Shaw, has reviewed the book for Reviews in History. Lynsey is a Wellcome Trust funded doctoral student, studying administrative and therapeutic practices of the Royal Air Force neuropsychiatric branch during the Second World War.
Lynsey gives a positive review of The Neurological Patient in History, concluding that it
…is a valuable and welcome addition to the historiography. It not only places the neurological patient firmly in the spotlight, it also encourages readers to re-examine the patient using fresh and thought-provoking lines of enquiry.
The book is nestling on our rather full shelves in Library Room 2 at shelfmark RC338 NEU 2012.
