Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Editor Hersen (psychology, Pacific Univ.; Psychological Assessment) began this revision shortly before the death of fourth-edition author/editor Samuel M. Turner (psychology, Univ. of Maryland; Diagnostic Interviewing); colleague Deborah C. Beidel (psychiatry, Penn State Coll. of Medicine; Shy Children) joined the project afterward. Comprising 17 expanded chapters and one new one (on race and ethnicity), it uses the nomenclature of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders IVthroughout and includes the field's most current research. Following nine field specialists' theories on classifications, diagnoses, the interviewing process, and relevant racial, ethnic, and genetic concerns, 13 chapters explain recognized clinical disorders, their distinct neural pathology, associated case studies, related epidemiology, and suggested treatments. Written specifically for field specialists, this edition will prove vital to psychological and psychiatric medical collections.
