Our current era of globalization demands international partnering (1). Accordingly, we can now welcome one of the first substantial multinational efforts to develop a global textbook of psychiatry. Three eminent editors, from England, Spain, and the United States, have created a scholarly, erudite, and readable work that will enter the pantheon of outstanding, major textbooks. How international and major is it? Contributing authors, organized into 11 sections and 261 chapters, represent 24 different countries: England (152 authors), the United States (85 authors), Germany (13 authors), Australia (11 authors), Canada (10 authors), Scotland (nine authors), Spain (eight authors), the Netherlands (seven authors), France (six authors), Israel (five authors), Finland, Italy, and Sweden (four authors each), Belgium and Switzerland (three authors each), Denmark and New Zealand (two authors each), and Argentina, Austria, Chile, Ireland, Hong Kong, Norway, and Yugoslavia (one author each). Readers of psychiatry will notice that the editors clearly have assembled an all-star cast, selected from many of the world’s best universities and research institutes. The relative lack of representation from Asia, Africa, and other parts of the non-English-speaking world suggests plenty of room for additional globalization in future editions.
