By the mid-21st century, the United States will no longer have a Caucasian majority. This fact, coupled with the evidence showing that misdiagnosis occurs more frequently in minority populations, indicates that the future domestic and international utility of DSM-IV and its companions will depend on their suitability for use with various cultures.

I'm not going to keep reading this one. As is the case with any publication with multiple authors, some chapters are better written than others. Overall, pretty dry. Some good information, but the delivery kind of takes away from the message.
