A Final Note
`Aboud's book is the second volume of a cross-cultural series edited by Lonner and Berry. The laudable aim of the series is to critically evaluate Western paradigms through anexploration of the realtionship between culture and behaviour. This book's contribution to a more 'inclusive psychology' is through an examination of the health issues and dilemmas faced by developing countries, comparing these with the exeriences of developed nations. Adopting a biopsychosocial framework, it integartes material froma wide variety of disciplines, including psychology, anthropology, epidemiology, education and nursing. It is this psychological framework which distinguishes it from the primarily anthropological texts in this field....In summary, Aboud's enthusiasm and practical insight derived from her own experiences of working in developing countries underlies this overview of international health. The action-orientated approach throughout the text emphasises the empowerment and autonomous functioning of local communities. Indeed, our own conceptions of health and how to achieve health are constantly challenged in this lively text. Thus combined with an impressively diverse coverage of literature from many developing nations makes it a stimulating read for students with an interest in cross-cultural health' - Health Psychology Update
