While most abnormal psychology texts aim solely for magnitude, The Oxford Textbook of Psychopathology aims for both scope and depth. The editors selected the most eminent researchers to write chapters on all the major mental disorders, allowing experts to discuss notable issues in the various pathologies that are their expertise. Its exceptional collection of authors not only reflects the reality of the heterogeneous nature of psychopathology, but it allows the reader to be exposed to a variety of notions about the favored approaches, the most crucial issues, and the most informative forms of discourse. As an intense professional book, it is appropriate for all mental health workers, clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, and social workers. Furthermore, as a volume focused on understanding underlying psychopathology with extensive coverage of personality disorders and issues related to classification and differential diagnosis, it is a valuable tool for professionals in disorder diagnosis and graduate students of psychopathology.

"Since the adoption of the DSM-IV, there has been a void in graduate-level textbooks on psychopathology, that is, until now. This text lives up to its responsibility to provide students with updated and in-depth information that takes them well beyond every undergraduate psychopathology text. It is balanced in every dimension that I had hoped, truly a scholarly achievement."--Dwain Pellebon, University of Oklahoma
