about

This well-illustrated compendium of recent works in social psychiatry from around the world describes the association between cultural elements indigenous to a society and mental health and illness. The book compares this anthropologic-descriptive body of work with highly quantitative research papers that emphasize the notion of stratification. A discussion of directions for future cross-cultural investigations integrating culturalist and universalist approaches concludes the text.
