Since the 1940s, the American Psychopathological Association has been a driving force in psychiatric genetic research. Having studied the Kallmann and Kety Hoch Award papers, many researchers have attempted to advance psychiatric genetic knowledge from epidemiological findings to biological findings. Genetic Approaches to Mental Disorders provides the latest information on the relationship between genetics and mental disorders. Divided into four sections, this book presents analysis of the genetic data, linkage mapping and association, debate over genetic Kraepelinian dichotomy, and mapping and association results in psychiatry.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"My first compliment to the editors is that they have selected some papers that are still worth reading... Perhaps the best endorsement I can offer is to report that I have used this book. At least one grant application, a few papers, and several discussions with colleagues have benefited from what I found in this book. I still keep it near my desk for quick reference, and I notice when it has been borrowed but not returned."-- "Frances J. McMahon, M.D., General Hospital Psychiatry"


"Any professional researcher or clinician concerned about the genetic contribution to mental disorders would be well-advised to keep this authoritative compendium at hand."-- "Jonathan Piel, Editor, Scientific American"


"This is an up-to-date book on the state of the knowledge and the controversies in psychiatric genetics."-- "Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal"
