Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, D.O., M.A.(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book focuses on the psychobiology of the major mood and anxiety disorders. Written and edited by a clinician-researcher in the field, this book is a valuable contribution to psychiatry.
Purpose: The purpose, according to the author, is to provide an integrative conceptual approach to mood and anxiety disorders with an emphasis on the neuroscientific and evolutionary aspects.
Audience: The intended audience is practicing clinicians. The book would also be useful for trainees in psychiatry.
Features: The eight chapters cover topics such as major depression, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and social anxiety disorder. Within each topic, the diagnosis, evaluation, and treatments are reviewed. There are recent and useful references at the end of the book as well as helpful anxiety and depression rating scales. Missing from the management section of major depression is a discussion of the use and neuroscientific rationale of convulsive therapy.
Assessment: Overall, except for this one omission, this is a good book on the basics of the psychobiology of the major mood and anxiety disorders.
