The metamorphosis of autism – A history of child development in Britain

Author: Bonnie Evans

This book explains the current fascination with autism by linking it to a longer history of childhood development. Drawing from a staggering array of primary sources, it traces autism back to its origins in the early twentieth century and explains why the idea of autism has always been controversial and why it experienced a ‘metamorphosis’ in the 1960s and 1970s.
