A comprehensive revision to the authoritative textbook on modern psychiatric diagnosis and treatment.

Considered a leading text in the field on the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of psychiatric disorders, this latest revision includes cutting-edge updates in neurochemistry, psychopharmacology, genetics, and functional neuroimaging. Geared to resident students in psychiatry and related disciplines, it makes sense of the field's burgeoning scientific emphasis.

“An important component of the work regarding students and residents is that it leaves nothing to chance; important terms are clearly defined, and the facts are placed into a historical context, which helps the novice understand the evolution of the field…. Excellent case descriptions bring the abstract concepts to life…. [T]he information provided is relevant and to the point, with excellent instruments for clinicians to use in day-to-day practice…It will be invaluable to students during an initial psychiatric experience. Overall, this is a readable, easy-to-understand, and helpful basic text for students, or ‘refresher’ for practicing clinicians.” — The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease

“It is funny, occasionally provocative, and filled with clinically relevant descriptions of the important diagnostic features of the major psychiatric syndromes.” — Contemporary Psychiatry
