Recent Supreme Court decisions categorically preclude the application of capital
punishment to convicted offenders who were below the age of eighteen or mentally
retarded at the time they committed the crimes for which they were sentenced.1 Neither
opinion suggests that offenders in these categories cannot be criminally responsible
for their offenses, and the Atkins opinion explicitly recognizes that some mentally
retarded offenders can qualify as criminally responsible for their offenses.

Mental health in scarce-resource settings has received considerable attention in the new millennium, in response to the growing evidence on the burden of mental disorders and their cost-effective treatments.

I had not realised before starting work on this book how much
attention had in¯uenced my thinking about mental illness and
mental health. In the 1980s, I had been greatly intrigued by Pierre
Janet's descriptions of attentional debility as a pathognomonic sign
of hysteria. According to Janet, the (usually female) hysterical
patient differed from others in an inability to talk and tap her
®ngers on command at the same time.
This book by Graham Thornicroft and Michele Tansella has a very clear objective:
how better care could achieve better outcomes for people suffering from mental
disorders. The preoccupation of the book is to derive bettermental health care from
