This relatively short text is long on the "social" parts of its scope and short on the "medical" aspects. The "social" fraction deals with ethical and legal issues, emotions of the patient and family, psychiatric care, student attitudes, and related topics. Altogether it could serve well as an introductory text for first-level medical students, house officers, and paramedical personnel.
