This book provides detailed analyses of suicide in eight Asian societies. Asia as a whole is under rapid transition and transformation, and the associated stress and depression are both closely linked to suicide.

Dr. Paul S. F. Yip is the director of the Hong Kong Jockey Club Centre for Suicide Research and Prevention and a Professor of Social Work and Social Administration at the University of Hong Kong.Review:
In recent years, through research and greater openness, the extent and nature of the problem of suicide in Asia have become more apparent. It is clear that the causes of suicide in Asia and hence the optimal prevention strategies have some specific features which differ from those elsewhere in the world. It is therefore extremely welcome to see a book specifically focussed on suicide in Asia. The editor and authors are to be congratulated on having prepared a valuable contribution that will help in tackling this important issue. (Professor Keith Hawton, University of Oxford)
