Much has been written about this long and torturous history, starting with the work of Michel Foucault; but this important article by Vernon Rosario, a psychiatrist and a frequent contributor to these pages over the years, stands as a singularly succinct history of the medical model.

Stone, for her extraordinary service to the GLR over the years.
