About this book

This book systematically presents and classifies the latest advances in suicide research in contemporary China, examines the status quo of suicides in China and analyzes the reasons for suicides among three high-risk groups, namely: rural females, teenagers, and the elderly. It reveals the deep-seated influence of traditional Chinese values and socio-cultural customs on suicide and puts forward a way to prevent suicide. This book argues that high suicide rates stem from flaws in the social fabric. Effectively reducing suicide rates and mitigating the damage done by suicide as a social disease is not only the responsibility of the state government, but also that of social, educational and medical professionals.
