BOOK: Crazy Like Us: The Globalization of the American Psyche, by Ethan Watters

"By focusing on four countries and four disorders - anorexia in Hong Kong; post traumatic stress disorder in post-tsunami Sri Lanka; schizophrenia in Zanzibar, Tanzania; and depression in Japan - Watters shows how American mental health professionals and pharmaceutical companies, sometimes accidentally, sometimes insidiously, have actually hastened the spread of some Western disorders." -- Boston Globe
