9780521578011: The Essentials of Postgraduate Psychiatry

The third edition of this highly successful postgraduate psychiatry text offers a comprehensive review of the characteristic causes and treatment of the main psychiatric disorders. As with earlier editions, it is divided into four parts: General Principles, Clinical Disorders, Psychiatry in Special Settings, and Principles of Treatment. It is also extensively referenced throughout and emphasizes the relationship of research findings to clinical practice. The text has been thoroughly revised and updated in line with the most recent developments in psychiatric practice and thinking. In particular, the editors include more discussion of measurement issues, concepts of illness, brain function, and neurophysiology. The already distinguished team of contributors has been made even more impressive by the addition of new stars in the field.

Review:

"I believe that this book may be of some use for psychiatrists in training in the United States in preparation for their board examinations. Its conciseness and clarity and the introductory sections certainly make it worth the experience intellectually...For psychiatrists who have completed their formal training and have an interest in world psychiatry, this is the textbook to consult initially...Many of the concepts presented have not been stressed in our training programs and offer teaching faculty an additional point of view to use with both house staff and medical students. There are other excellent British textbooks, including some with largely Germanic influence, but I believe this is the best one to bring American psychiatrists in contact with British and other European points of view." Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
