Review:

'As always, Current Themes provides up to date and practical knowledge on issues of real clinical relevance to many psychiatrists. While some of the chapters cover frequently encountered conditions, others touch on more esoteric yet no less important topics. All are presented with an eye towards practical and sensitive application in today's complex social and medical environment. This is a 'must read' for the practicing clinician.' - Fawzy Ibrahim Fawzy, M.D., Louis Jolyon West Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry, Senior Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, David Geffen School of Medicine at University of California at Los Angeles, USA

'An unique reference book for psychiatrists and mental health professionals from experience clinicians sharing contemporary and challenging issues. The chapters were written in a precise and lucid style, which makes it also a worthy reference for trainees and young practitioners who seeks practical help at their daily work.' - Linda Lam, Professor, Department of Psychiatry, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, President, the Hong Kong College of Psychiatrists

'Current Themes in Psychiatry: in Theory and Practice is a useful guide to contemporary psychiatry. Befitting its focus on science-based progress in psychiatry; it is objective and accurate. As a comprehensive guide for psychiatric practice, it is a valuable resource for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, trainees and professionals in key mental health fields, including psychiatry, psychology, social work, and nursing.

This volume has been substantially revised with an eye toward incorporating diverse themes and perspectives currently relevant in research and practice. Each chapter been updated and the text has been reorganized to facilitate easy assimilation of major conceptual and practical issues in psychiatry. A highlight of the book is its effective juxtaposition of classic research with the latest breakthroughs in a way that helps students appreciate how knowledge builds on earlier findings. Culturally relevant themes have also been incorporated making it a useful reference for students and professionals from all parts of the world. Particularly trainees from Asia will find this book bridging a critical void existing in the continent in terms of available literature pertaining to cultural and practical issues in the practice of Psychiatry.

Up-to-date, scientifically rigorous, and exhaustive in its scope, Current Themes in Psychiatry: in Theory and Practice promises to be an enjoyable read as well as a tremendous learning experience for trainees in all of the mental health professions.' - Pratap Sharan. Professor, Department of Psychiatry, All India Institute of Medical Sciences

'... an excellent book...provides conceptual and practical information on many of the difficult subjects in psychiatry which are not dealt with in ordinary texts. It is a pleasure to read. It is much better than its unassuming title suggests, and is a noble sequel to the series which went before, of which I was a part many years ago.' - Stephen Hirsch, Imperial College, London
