I really enjoyed reading this book, and I think that it isvery useful for individuals involved in health care planningand service distribution and for people interested in the historyof the treatment of depression, particularly in primarycare. This book relates the history of the treatment of depressionin the United States and the United Kingdom, particularlysince World War II, with a focus on treatment inprimary care settings. The book is informative and interestingin its historical perspectives, clearly revealing wherewe have been and how we got to where we are now.
