It provides a framework for international policy-makers to develop a concrete agenda for action and for further research on mental and social health.

MEDIA REVIEWS
an important book for participants in international policy discussions about world mental health ... also a useful book for students in public health ... The editors are internationally known authorities. It is easy to read. It proposes a series of initiatives that can help change the way we think about health and prosperity. * Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal *
The authors provide scholarly documentation of the epidemiology, anthropology, and consequences of the major mental health and behavioural problems that form an increasing part of the health burden around the world. Throughout, the book emphasizes the need to recognize and be sensitive to the role of culture and local institutions. The arguments and calls to action are hortatory but logical and convincing, and they follow from the material presented. Because each chapter is self-contained, the book can be read starting at any point, depending on one's interests. Whether readers are oriented quantitatively or qualitatively, they can enjoy and be informed by any or all of the chapters. The book is well written and carefully documented, with extensive notes and references. * Grace Wyshak, Harvard School of Public Health, The New England Journal of Medicine, November 1995 *
