About this title


A comprehensive and concise textbook geared to the medical student. Written by two distinguished academic psychiatrists, the book offers the advantage of consistency of style, non-repetitiveness and clarity. Tables and questions provide a complement to the text. Organized in four major sections, an introductory section addresses history, assessment, diagnosis, laboratory tests and neurobiology. Section 2 focuses on the major psychiatric disorders. Section 3 examines special topics in psychiatry, including psychiatric aspects of AIDS, disorders of childhood and adolescence, and suicide. Section 4 covers both psychosocial and somatic treatments.
