An international team of leading researchers and clinicians here provide a comprehensive, epidemiological overview of this multi-faceted and still perplexing disorder, and address some of the key questions it raises. How important in the genetic contribution to schizophrenia? Do pregnancy and birth complications increase the risk for schizophrenia? Is the incidence of schizophrenia changing? Why is the rate higher among immigrants and in those born in cities? Controversial issues such as the validity of discrete or dimensional classifications of schizophrenia and the continuum between psychosis and 'normality' are explored in depth, and separate chapters are devoted to topics of particular relevance to schizophrenia such as suicide, violence and substance abuse. Finally, new prospects for treatment and prevention are considered. Drawing together the findings from social, genetic, developmental and classical epidemiology of schizophrenia, this text will prove an invaluable resource for clinicians and researchers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review of the hardback: 'This is a refreshing and helpful book that presents an up-to-date and comprehensive understanding of schizophrenia. It is also a great book to learn about the application of epidemiology on mental health.' Doody's
Review of the hardback: 'The Epidemiology of Schizophrenia is the most comprehensive assembly of existing knowledge to date ... This is a volume packed with information ...'. Psychology and Psychiatry
Review of the hardback: 'The Edipemiology of Schizophrenia is a well-written, comprehensive book which provides an overview of the current state of epidemiological knowledge and research in schizophrenia today. ... this book could be recommended both for child/adolescent and adult psychiatrists, working with schizophrenia and schizophrenia-like disorders. Answers to many questions are given, but the book also presents new, interesting questions that need to be answered in the future. This book will fit in the library at the psychiatric clinic. It comprises five interesting parts to read and a lot of references for clinicians or researchers who want to deepen their knowledge further.' European Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
"This is a refreshing and helpful book that presents an up-to-date and comprehensive understanding of schizophrenia. The sections on medical health, suicide, and substance abuse are helpful for clinical practice." John Claro Onate, Doody's Review Service
"This is an impressive book. It brings together a remarkable array of evidence...this book is a very useful compendium of epidemiologic findings concerning schizophrenia and it should be of interest and helpful not only to psychiatrists interested in schizophrenia but also to geneticists, physicians of disciplines other than psychiatry, and public health decision makers." American Journal of Psychiatry
"I recommend this book highly. All the ingredients required for an understanding of the epidemiology of schizophrenia are between its covers. The editors have made a remarkable effort to organize the material into a consolidated work." The New England Journal of Medicine
"The Epidemiology of Schizophrenia is the most comprehensive assembly of existing knowledge to date...a substantial achievement in the compilation of scientific knowledge on this subject." The Times Higher Education Supplement
