Franco Basaglia (1924-1980) was an Italian psychiatrist and activist who proposed the dismantling of psychiatric hospitals and pioneered new ideas about mental health and its treatment. Basaglia was also one of the principal proponents of Italy's Law 180, which effectively closed down large mental hospitals in Italy. His ideas and his disciples have had a decisive influence in the move away from institutional care in many parts of the world, particularly in continental Europe and South America. However, Basaglia is strikingly absent from the literature in Germanic and Anglophone psychiatry. Most of the literature about Basaglia in the last 40 years has been published by his followers and supporters and has often been largely positive, with little exploration of differing responses or possible limitations of his model. Basaglia's International Legacy: From Asylum to Community provides an overview of current thinking and the international influence of Franco Basaglia. This resource draws on the combined knowledge of clinicians, policy makers, historians, and social scientists, including a handful of Basaglia's collaborators. It provides an in-depth understanding and critical analysis of the various applications of his thinking worldwide. Organised into three broad sections, chapters examine Basaglia's work and influence in Italy; in the 'Basaglian' countries of Europe and South America; and in those countries where his influence has either been rejected or significantly modified. The Editors bring together the contributions and draw out the important messages (both positive and negative) for current clinical practice and development within international mental health services.

Tom Burns is Professor Emeritus of Social Psychiatry at the University of Oxford and Honorary Professor of Psychiatry at University College London. He has published eight books and over 300 papers. Our Necessary Shadow: The Nature and Meaning of Psychiatry, his book on psychiatry for the general reader, was published by Penguin in 2014. He was awarded the CBE in 2006 for services to mental health care. Professor John Foot's work focuses predominantly on contemporary Italy. He has published research in urban history, the history of sport, and memory studies, often directed at the general reader. From 2010 he carried out research, funded by the Wellcome Trust, into the life and work of the radical psychiatrist Franco Basaglia. This led to the publication of his book, The Man Who Closed the Asylums: Franco Basaglia and the Revolution in Mental Health Care. Professor Foot is currently working on a history of Italian fascism.
