520    "It's Madness examines Korea's critical years under 
       Japanese colonialism when mental health first became 
       defined as a medical and social problem. As in most Asian 
       countries, severe social ostracism, shame, and fear of 
       jeopardizing marriage prospects drove most Korean families
       to conceal the mentally ill behind closed doors. This book
       explores the impact of Chinese traditional medicine and 
       its holistic approach to treating mental disorders, the 
       resilience of folk illnesses as explanations for 
       inappropriate and dangerous behaviors, the emergence of 
       clinical psychiatry as a discipline, and the competing 
       models of care under the Japanese colonial authorities and
       Western missionary doctors. It also analyzes 
       interpretations of culture-bound emotional states that 
       Koreans have viewed as specific to their interpersonal 
       relationships, social experiences, local contexts, and the
       new medical discourses that the Korean press adopted to 
       reshape social understandings of mental illness. Drawing 
       upon unpublished archival as well as printed sources, this
       is the first study to examine the ways in which "madness" 
       has been understood, classified, and treated in 
       traditional Korea and the role of science in pathologizing
       and redefining mental illness under Japanese colonial 
       rule"--|cProvided by publisher
