Reviews

"Anyone who peruses Ziff's work will not have an easy time putting it down. This book is more than a history of a time, a place, a movement, and a people. It is instead a sensitive and centered examination ... her portraits of people who influenced the asylum are wonderfully rendered ... alive and moving." - Samuel T. Gladding, Wake Forest University "Asylum On The Hill is a fascinating and poignant history of one hospital, its patients and staff. Accompanied by rare, never released photos and records, Ziff's easy narrative weaves the personal accounts of daily life with the broader context of post-Civil War America. What's truly remarkable about Ziff's book is that it tells a parallel story of our nation's history and the forces that shaped not only the asylums but also the many other fundamental public institutions that survive today. A highly engaging work that makes the past come alive." - Christopher Payne, author of Asylum: Inside the Closed World of State Mental Hospitals "This well-written, accurately researched historical work tells the story of the Athens Lunatic Asylum... . This is a work that brings the reader inside the life and times of patient care in Ohio. Asylum on the Hill is highly readable, enlightening, and for those who currently work in the field of psychiatry, the story is familiar and somewhat poignant... . Highly recommended." Choice
