This profound book by an international leader in mental health plumbs
the depths of psychiatric values. Norman Sartorius has served as director
of the Division of Mental Health at the World Health Organization and President
of the World Psychiatric Association. In these essays he brilliantly underscores
the plain and simple reality that prevention of psychiatric disease and mental
distress cannot be accomplished without addressing the social and physical
contexts in which people live.
