The volumes in this set make available significant studies on mental health and illness. Chronic Schizophrenia is an important contribution towards understanding both the condition and the concepts of care and treatment. By the same authors, Studies on Psychosis draws out the unity of a number of different approaches to psychiatric research. In the pioneering work, Mental Illness in Childhood, the author demonstrates the therapeutic potential of the specially constructed environment, while Psychological Illness looks at the community aspect of mental health. The three volumes Mental Health in a Changing World are derived from discussions between leading international specialists and deal with trans-cultural and inter-disciplinary approaches to the field as a whole.
