Editorial Reviews

Review

“In Conscience and Convenience, Rothman examines the development of a series of related responses to social deviance arising in early twentieth century America: probation, parole, the juvenile court, the therapeutic mental hospital, and outpatient mental health care.”

—Guyora Binder, Reviews in American History

“Rothman has provided a framework for the history of institutionalization in America, and the rest of us will either be using it or dealing with it for some time to come.”

—Rochelle Bookspan, The Public Historian

“With Conscience and Convenience, David J. Rothman completes his earlier book, The Discovery of the Asylum (1971), in which he shows how the Jacksonian endeavors to rehabilitate the dependent and the deviant degenerated into little more than institutions for punishment and incarceration.”

—Barbara Brenzel, The Journal of American History

Rothman is Bernard Schoenberg Professor of Social Medicine, professor of history, and director of the Center for the Study of Science and Medicine at the College of Physicians and Surgeons, Columbia University.  He is the author of numerous works, including The Willowbrook Wars, The Discovery of the Asylum, and The Pursuit of Perfection: The Promise and Perils of Medical Enhancement.
