development of a medical speciality is submitted to professional and
social interests which go beyond the merely scientific or technical
The stablishment of specified markets and the configuration of monopolys
compel the specialists to start organizative strategies (associative
movements, media agencies, assisting and teaching institutions, etc)
depurating an authentic message that legitimates them. Their items vary

executive office...) and to the historical period that is considered.
This book deals with these items related to spanish mental medicine
in the last third part of the nineteenth century and the earliest decades
of the twentieth century, a key-stone period in the psychiatry history
and contemporary spanish culture.
