Asylums: Essays on the Social Situation of Mental Patients and Other Inmates - Goffman, Erving, and Helmreich, William B (Introduction by)

"Asylums" is an analysis of life in 'total institutions' - closed worlds like prisons, army camps, boarding schools, nursing homes and mental hospitals. It focuses on the relationship between the inmate and the institution, how the setting affects the person and how the person can deal with life on the inside.
