What is included with this book?

Summary

Presents the history of Raleigh¿s Dorothea Dix Hospital from the events surrounding the 1848 legislative authorization to fund and build the state¿s first mental hospital to the ongoing debate over the property¿s future following the proposed closing of the hospital in the early 21st century. The compelling narrative includes the personal stories of those who served the patients and thoughtful analysis of the trends and developments that shaped the hospital as an institution. Of particular interest are the changes in the perception and treatment of the mentally ill over Dix¿s 150-year history.
