Leprosy and colonialism : Suriname under Dutch rule, 1750-1950
Snelders, Stephen, 1963- author
Manchester : Manchester University Press, 2017
Leprosy and colonialism investigates the history of leprosy in Suriname within the context of Dutch colonial power and racial conflict, from the plantation economy and the age of slavery to its legacy in the modern colonial state. It explores the relationship between the modern stigmatization and exclusion of people affected with leprosy, and the political tensions and racial fears originating in colonial slave society, exerting their influence until after the decolonization up to the present day. In the book colonial sources are read from shifting perspectives, of the colonial rulers and, 'from below', the ruled. Though leprosy is today a neglected tropical disease, recognizing influences of our colonial heritage in our global management of health and disease, and exploring the perspectives of other cultures are essential in a time in which migration movements make the permeability of boundaries, and transmission of diseases, more common then perhaps ever before.

Políticas de salud mental y cambio social en América Latina
Rafael Huertas (coord.)
Madrid : Catarata, [2017]
"Este libro aborda la historia de las políticas de salud mental que desde finales de los años sesenta del siglo pasado y en las dos décadas posteriores se desarrollaron en países como Argentina, Chile, Brasil, Colombia y México. Una época marcada por profundos cambios sociales y culturales y por distintas confrontaciones ideológicas y políticas, en la que América Latina vio surgir, bajo la sombra de la Operación Cóndor y la Doctrina de la Seguridad Nacional, violentas dictaduras militares. Un convulso escenario de cambio sociopolítico y cultural al que el ámbito de la salud mental no fue ajeno en sus intentos de reforma, experiencias y movilizaciones, traspasando el debate científico y asistencial. Con capítulos específicos dedicados a analizar las políticas de salud mental en dichos países, esta obra muestra tanto sus similitudes como sus diferencias concretas, así como los obstáculos, impulsos y contradicciones que encontraron en su desarrollo. El presente volumen constituye así una valiosa aportación para el estudio comparado de la historia de la salud mental en América Latina, desde una perspectiva que es a la vez global y local."--Back cover.
