"The book does a service in pointing out its importance as a major issue in women's mental health ... There is much more here than mental and reproduction health." (World Federation for Mental Health, 1 August 2011) "Given the vital importance of social factors to the development of mental disorders in the women of the world and mainstream psychiatrys predominant focus on the biological, this books devotion to highlighting the impact of how cultural, political and economic conditions affect womens mental health is noteworthy and a major strength. The book also delivers on its promise to examine this area from a global perspective, and the reader is richer for it. Each inhabited continent is represented in the books list of contributors, and this ensures that relevant social factors are not overlooked. Not surprisingly, the product of this international focus is a book that is unparalleled in terms of the breadth of the social factors that are examined for their relevance to womens mental health." (Archives of Womens Mental Health, 2011) "The really interesting feature of the book is its emphasis on the role of cultural and social circumstances on the presentation, perceptions and treatment of mental health in women. The chapters on somatization and the impact of culture on women's mental health are essential reading for all health practitioners who have women among their patients." (Occupational Medicine, December 2010) "This book is a goldmine of information on the challenges for gender-focused research and clinical treatment of mental health problems. The editors have done a remarkable job of identifying and summarizing the available literature on women's mental health... It would be a valuable asset for academic psychiatrists and psychologists teaching courses or researching women's mental health issues, as well as psychotherapists." (Indian Journal of Psychiatry, October 2010)
