This book aims at describing the quintessential ideas of Maxwell Jones with regard to 'democratic' therapeutic communities from a historical point of view. The interest in this topic can be explained form an already long-standing research tradition at the Department of Orthopedagogics (Ghent University, Belgium) on Milieu therapy.

This book is intended for students and professional, from a broad variety of contexts and disiplines, who are interested in (social) psychiatry, (democratic) theraputic communities and milieu therapy.
