Spanning the years from 1967 to 1997 the papers contained in this volume show how cummings urged psychologists to prepare for profound changes in the mental health care delivery system. Cummings has already written extensively on the importance -- and the logistics -- of positioning mental health care as a linchpin in the provision of health care in general. The author has also provided updates on his most original and significant works, and in doing so points the way to possible future directions.
