International Review of Psychiatry, Volume 2, is the collaboration of the American Psychiatric Press, Inc., (APPI) and the worldwide network of eminent specialists of the World Psychiatric Association (WPA). This volume addresses issues that are increasingly impacting the practice of psychiatry and the lives of patients. Psychiatric practice is becoming more multicultural as a result of migration, tourism, and the lifting of barriers to services by the World Trade Organization. To be truly international, psychiatrists need a vantage point from which to view the panorama of international psychiatry. International Review of Psychiatry, Volume 2, provides that vantage point. * Section I -- Economic Aspects of Mental Health; Section Editors: Harold M.
