This chapter, the first of two with a historical emphasis, summarises the factors which led to the emergence of the large asylum system in the nineteenth century. It then outlines the enduring impact this system had on developments up to and including the twentieth century. The next chapter will continue the account, continuing the story from the Second World War to the present.
