Drawing from feminist, post modern, cultural, sociological and medical anthro-pological literature, this work shows the complex intertwining of illness and culture in the context of mental disorder. The ethnographic context of the study is the interface between mental health professionals, patients and their families in a local psychiatric hospital in New Delhi. The book anchors the discussion around feminist thinking and praxis in the mental health realm, along with the traditions of cultural psychiatry and medical anthropology. Deconstructing Mental Illnessis relevant and contemporary, and makes an important contribution to the field of mental health of women. This important new work extends the frontiers of social science research and offers alternative perspectives on women, health and disability.
