Painted Shadow: A Life of Vivienne Eliot by Carole Seymour-Jones
A very good book which reflects very badly on the treatment of those people with personality problems.

I was shocked that it was so easy to commit people.

Interesting background to some of the poems of Eliot

Good Insight into the unacceptable face society of that time. A great balance to the Downton image.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Picture Book, 30 Dec 2013
Great pictures but a little light light on facts and statistics.

The web site had much more detail than the book. The web site seems to have lost some of its detail recently.

I had hoped that the book would have expanded and given us more detail.

History is usually written by the winners.

This book gives a voice to some of the victims and losers, but were they really victims.

Research on a neglected area which gives a fresh slant on history. A voice which history has been unaware of and ignored in an important area of our society.

Similar to the current computer age which is giving many thousand a voice which should not be ignored
