Because this piece does not have an abstract, we have provided for your benefit the first 3 sentences of the full text.
The second edition of Principles of Social Psychiatry is a timely addition to your stack of mental health textbooks. It is timely for several reasons. First, this text offers important insights into the meaning of mental illness at many levels, just when the field of psychiatry struggles with how to best configure our latest Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (ie, DSM-5). Second, it helps the reader explore the impact of globalization, technology, and disasters on the mental health of both populations and individuals, just when the world is dealing with such events as the large earthquakes in Haiti, Chile, and Japan and the technology-aided uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya.
