MEDIA REVIEWS

"The book's comprehensiveness is impressive; it is current in its thinking and important in a somewhat unknown area.... The book is quite integrative, especially given the various research interests of the authors.... Considering the interplay between Axis I and Axis II conditions and the important consequences of such comorbidities, this book should have great appeal to psychiatrists and other mental health care practitioners. It is an excellent reference book that I believe will stay current throughout the next several years at least."-- "Psychiatric Times"


" "Personality and Psychopathology" provides a welcome, scholarly and informative snapshot of the fast-moving fields of personality theory and development, and of personality psychopathology and its treatment. Some of the most well-known researchers and clinicians in the area are contributors to the volume, and the scope of their subject matter includes personality structure and its longitudinal course; assessment of personality styles, dimensions, or disorders; and treatment and outcome of personality disorders. The book is packed with useful information and is highly recommended to all mental health clinicians."-- "John M. Oldham, M.D., Elizabeth K. Dollard Professor of Clinical Psychiatry, Medicine, and Law, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, Director, New York State Psychiatric Institute, New York, New York"


"The annual volumes of the American Psychopathological Association have provided the mental health field with focused scholarly reviews. The present volume, edited by Dr. Cloninger is a pithy summary of the state of the art and science in the emerging field of personality and psychopathology. Himself a pioneer in this field, Dr. Cloninger is joined by a select group of clinical scientists who have done some of the most provocative research on personality."-- "Hagop Akiskal, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry, Director of International Mood Center, University of California, San Diego, California"
