There is a newer edition of this title.
The new Edition continues to provide a concise and comprehensive introduction to descriptive psychopathology--the basis of clinical psychiatry. New developments in this area, in particular neuro-imaging, have resulted in the linking of psychopathological symptoms to specific brain changes and these findings are included in the book. In addition, there is increased coverage of the controversial area of multiple personality syndrome. Symptoms in the Mind links classical description with more modern work in psychopathology. Is is also complementary to the US Standard DSM-IV.
