I. Kolvin, "Predicting the future from the past", pp. 113-116, in J. Harris Hendriks and M. Black (eds.), Child and Adolescent Psychiatry: into the 1990's; Royal College of Psychiatrists Occasional Paper OP8, (Royal College of Psychiatrists, September 1990).
This book is timely. It addresses itself to an overview of the issues in establishing comprehensive child mental health services. Although it dwells on the past, it also attends to current problems and looks for new ways of solving these. This is as it should be.
