Ethics, Culture and Psychiatry International Perspectives

Edited by Ahmed Okasha, Juilo Arboleda-Florez, Norman Sartorius
American Psychiatric Press, 2000

"Every medical act is a moral act, and this affirms the relevance for all of us of this volume on ethics in a world that is increasingly multicultural. Professor Okasha and his collaborators at the World Psychiatric Association gave us the luminous Madrid Declaration Ethical Standards for Psychiatric Practice, and now they offers us a superb review of cultural contrasts on some of the most challenging ethical issues today." Juan Mezzich

"This book is much more than a book on ethics. Using a panel of distinguished experts, the editors have created a major contribution to understanding the impact of culture and history on the ethical practice of medicine around the world. It is an outstanding textbook on transcultural psychiatry. I read every word, and I highly recommend it." Robert O. Pasnau
