Fuentes, Yolanda, editor

Memory of the psychiatric hospital of Havana

Cuban Institute or [sic] Book, Havana. October 1971, 217p., b&w photographic illustrations plus many pix and graphs in garish color, white wraps a little soiled with handling, slight edgewear. Institutional self-promotion. The hospital boasts three therapeutic systems, "ergotherapy" (activities), psychotropic drugs (not named), and counseling. Big emphasis on "ergo" in which patients cut cane, make and create stuff (evidently most such activities are well beyond basketweaving), play and compete in sports (photo of one guy throwing a javelin, let's assume he's an advanced patient), have the use of what looks like a bogglingly large baseball stadium
