Review:

'The valuable contribution of this book is to present a critical and alternative perspective on 'global mental health', that moves beyond the simple listing of mental disorders and mapping the global burden of diseases, to acknowledge the growing importance of the political, economic and social determinants of mental health as well as the interplay between the social and the cultural with the biological dimensions of mental disorders.' - Duncan Pedersen, McGill University, Canada

'This scholarly but accessible book makes a thoughtful and useful contribution to the current debate about mental health around the world[.]' - Rachel Tribe, University of East London, UK

'This book is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand this complex issue. It is written in a calm, clear and accessible style, making the book suitable for specialists and lay people alike.' - David Ingleby, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands
