MEDIA REVIEWS

'This second edition of Suman Fernando's book, now co-edited by Frank Keating, is a must read for those interested in cultural influences on the expression and management of mental distress in diverse societies. Although the book is anchored in British experience there are general propositions which should also be taken up for psychiatric practice the world over.' - Kamaldeep Bhui, Professor of Cultural Psychiatry & Epidemiology, Barts & The London School of Medicine & Dentistry, Honorary Consultant Psychiatrist East London NHS Foundation Trust.
