520    "Migrants in Translation is an ethnographic reflection on 
       foreign migration, mental health, and cultural translation
       in Italy. Its larger context is Europe and the rapid 
       shifts in cultural and political identities that are 
       negotiated between cultural affinity and a multicultural, 
       multiracial Europe. The issue of migration and cultural 
       difference figures as central in the process of forming 
       diverse yet unified European identities. In this context, 
       legal and illegal foreigners-mostly from Eastern Europe 
       and Northern and Sub-Saharan Africa-are often portrayed as
       a threat to national and supranational identities, 
       security, cultural foundations, and religious values.  
       This book addresses the legal, therapeutic, and moral 
       techniques of recognition and cultural translation that 
       emerge in response to these social uncertainties. In 
       particular, Migrants in Translation focuses on Italian 
       ethno-psychiatry as an emerging technique that provides 
       culturally appropriate therapeutic services exclusively to
       migrants, political refugees, and victims of torture and 
       trafficking. Cristiana Giordano argues that ethno-
       psychiatry's focus on cultural identifications as 
       therapeutic-inasmuch as it complies with current political
       desires for diversity and multiculturalism-also provides a
       radical critique of psychiatric, legal, and moral 
       categories of inclusion, and allows for a rethinking of 
       the politics of recognition"--|cProvided by publisher
