We all know the word 'bedlam' as a term of madness and confusion, but few of us really know the story of how this term was coined, or how the real history of Bethlem Hospital in London came to epitomise the brutality long associated with lunatic asylums all over the country. Dr Paul Chambers, a published historian, has done some detailed research to bring the whole story of Bethlem Hospital to a new audience, and he provides a coherent overview of the entire 800 year history of this famous hospital, from its well-intended beginnings to its final disgrace and reform.
