    Review quote
    From the reviews: "This book is ... on mental health from a global perspective. ... the book provides a welcome break from the mainstream psychiatric literature in its effort to document mental health issues relevant to the vast majority of the world's population living in low- and middle-income countries. ... I enjoyed reading this book ... . I recommend this book to anyone interested in the evaluation of mental health-care programs in developing countries." (Vikram Patel, Transcultural Psychiatry, Vol. 41 (2), June, 2004)
