The American Psychiatric Press Textbook of Psychiatry represents a major contribution to psychiatric education. By skilled editing, a single volume has been compiled which summarises the latest research and clinical findings in all main areas of the field. Chapters from 55 eminent specialists cover theoretical foundations, assessment, psychiatric disorders and psychiatric treatment, together with special topics such as psychiatry in its social and legal contexts. Extensive appendices list the diagnostic criteria from DSM I I I R, and give excerpts from the new American Psychiatric Glossary.
