Autism in History : The Case of Hugh Blair of Borgue, Paperback / softback Book

Autism in History : The Case of Hugh Blair of Borgue Paperback / softback


This engaging story of an eighteenth century Scottish laird whose brief arranged marriage was annulled on the grounds of his mental capacity -- which seen through modern eyes can be identified as autism.

It is a story of villainy and innocence, and provides a fascinating historical context to which the latest theories on autism are applied.
