From the reviews:"It not only offers an updated, comprehensible anthology for professionals in psychiatry but also takes into account the influence of European history and culture on current ethical issues. ... this updated, comprehensive and careful selection of articles makes this anthology a valuable ... book. Besides an informative overview about ethics and psychiatry, the anthology makes a first step towards a broader discussion about European-specific values in psychiatry." (Jurg C. Streuli, Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy, Issue 2, 2011)"An excellent resource of information and insights for both psychiatrists and other professionals who wish to develop knowledge, understanding, and awareness in this very important aspect of professional practice. ... Ethics in Psychiatry: European Contributions provides a wealth of relevant and useful information for clinicians, teachers, researchers, and other professional groups in the medical and welfare professions, and it will serve as a useful reference resource. ... an admirable resource for both the teacher and the learner in psychiatry and in other related professional groups." (Ingrid Lunt, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 56 (29), July, 2011)
