Synopsis: Feeble-mindedness was a late Victorian and Edwardian obsession. Unlike madness, idiocy has not been much written about, but it has its own tragic story. This book examines both how and why certain children and adults were labeled as "feeble-minded" and segregated into special schools and colonies in late Victorian and Edwardian England. This challenging book exploits a rich variety of archival sources and a wide range of contemporary medical, educational, and parliamentary material.
