CALL FOR AUTHORS: Cultural Sociology of Mental Illness: An A-to-Z Guide

Greetings,

We are inviting academic editorial contributors to a new 2-volume
reference work on the Cultural Sociology of Mental Illness: An A-to-Z
Guide. We are currently making assignments with a deadline of October
31, 2012.

Per the U.S. Surgeon General’s report on mental health, “Surveys
estimate that during a 1-year period, 22 to 23 percent of the U.S.
adult population—or 44 million people—have diagnosable mental
disorders, according to reliable, established criteria.” The report
goes on to say “epidemiological estimates have shifted over time
because of changes in the definitions and diagnosis of mental health
and mental illness.” Indeed, some experts believe there has been an
astonishing rise in mental illness. According to one report: “In 1987,
prior to Prozac hitting the market and the current ubiquitous use of
antidepressants and other psychiatric drugs, the U.S. mental illness
disability rate was 1 in every 184 Americans, but by 2007 the mental
illness disability rate had more than doubled to 1 in every 76
Americans.” Discussion now revolves around the questions: Are there
truly more mentally ill people now or are there just more people being
diagnosed and treated? And what are the roles of economics and the
pharmaceutical industry in this controversy? At the core of what is
going on with mental illness in America and around the world, we
believe, is cultural sociology: How differing cultures treat mental
illness and, in turn, how mental patients are affected by the culture.
In this multidisciplinary reference, we look at the culture of mental
illness in non-clinical perspectives of sociology, history,
psychology, epidemiology, economics, public policy, health
practitioners, and finally the mental health patient him or herself.

This comprehensive project of approximately 375 signed articles will
be published by SAGE Reference and will be marketed to academic and
public libraries as a print and digital product available to students
via the library’s electronic services. The General Editor, who will be
reviewing each submission to the project, is Dr. Andrew Scull,
University of California, San Diego.

If you are interested in contributing to this cutting-edge reference,
it is a unique opportunity to contribute to the contemporary
literature, redefining sociological issues in today’s terms. Moreover,
it can be a notable publication addition to your CV/resume and broaden
your publishing credits. SAGE Publications offers an honorarium
ranging from SAGE book credits for smaller articles up to a free set
of the printed product or access to the online product for
contributions totaling 10,000 words or more.

The list of available articles is already prepared, and as a next step
we will e-mail you the Article List (Excel file) from which you can
select topics that best fit your expertise and interests.
Additionally, Style and Submission Guidelines will be provided that
detail article specifications.

If you would like to contribute to building a truly outstanding
reference with the Cultural Sociology of Mental Illness: An A-to-Z
Guide, please contact me by the e-mail information below. Please
provide your CV or a summary of your academic/publishing credentials
in related disciplines.

Thank you very much.
Joseph K. Golson, Author Manager
