The Development of an Indian Mental Hospital in British India, c. 1920–1940
This book provides an in-depth case study of a psychiatric institution within the context of colonial rule during the early twentieth century. It focuses on patient statistics, medical treatments and diagnoses, and considers the ‘indigenisation’ or ‘Indianisation’ of the colonial medical services and the significance of international professional networks.
This volume offers a detailed analysis of colonial policies in respect to communication in India – via roads, ferries, steamships and railways – and reveals how communication became an integral part of colonial governance in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
