Paul Chambers shows how much more there is to the story of Bedlam. Sensitively written and meticulously researched, this book is a compelling exploration of an institution that continues to fascinate today, not least because of William Hogarth's immortalization of the hospital in art. In the course of his research, Chambers uncovers new material relating to the hospital's history, ensuring that this story of Bedlam is like no other. Refusing to limit his scope by falling back on stereotypes, Chambers balances the gore, depravity and madness against a touching, compelling, and sometimes comic story, which raises crucial questions about our own attitudes towards mental health.
