Images of Psychiatry: The Caribbean is a collaborative venture of the WPA Conflict Management and Conflict Resolution Section and the Department of Community Health and Psychiatry at the University of the West Indies, Mona, Jamaica. It is the fourth and latest in the WPA Images of Psychiatry series. The book traces the historic, medical, and scientific development of Caribbean Psychiatry in the rich and diverse context of the West Indian culture. It addresses not only the medical aspects of the profession but also takes on the indelible marks left by slavery and racism as well as the accompanying social and political consequences. It is a book abounding in detail, visionary thinking, and pragmatic examples be they clinical, ethical or health policy focused, across the life cycle. It is dedicated to Professor Michael Beaubrun, the father of modern Caribbean Psychiatry. It is a thought provoking tome, worthy of the rich, West Indian and universal medical, cultural and intellectual traditions of our profession.
