Since its publication in 1991, this book has been a leading text in the field of race and culture in mental health. This second edition has been thoroughly revised and updated. The result is a book that presents a critical account of Western psychiatry and psychology seen from a cross-cultural perspective that addresses ways in which ideas about "race" and racism continue to influence theory and practice in the field. The book proposes imaginative and constructive ways in which the disciplines may be re-structured taking on board wisdom and technologies from all cultural traditions in order to achieve a practical model for mental health that is universally applicable.
