The contributors are distinguished experts who have a firm grasp of the relevant and classical citations in specific areas of psychiatry.

Included in this second edition are numerous citations and new topics such as AIDS, neuropsychiatry, models of psychoanalytic thought, child development, and medical economics.

The book will open bibliographic doors for the academician as well as for the provider, manager, and consumer of psychiatric services and knowledge. It is designed to be an introduction and guide to the entire psychiatric literature.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, D.O., M.A.(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is an annotated bibliography to the classic and recent literature in psychiatry. The chapters are written by leading authorities in their field and cover all the essential areas in mental health.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an up-to-date guide to the rapidly expanding literature in psychiatry. Well-known experts in their respective field lead the reader through the most important works in mental health. The book provides an extensive survey of the current state of the psychiatric literature.
Audience: This bibliography is intended for "academicians as well as for providers, shapers, managers, and consumers of psychiatric services and knowledge," according to the editors. The price is well worth it, but it will probably be limited to a reference text in medical school and psychiatry department libraries.
Features: The chapters are divided into six parts covering the areas of basic science, psychopathology, assessment, treatment, normality and development, special topics such as community psychiatry, administrative psychiatry, ethics, economic issues, military psychiatry, occupational psychiatry, psychiatric research, psychiatric education and supervision, and a chapter detailing the books available for families about serious mental illness. In addition, there is an author and subject index.
Assessment: This is an outstanding and up-to-date bibliography, authored by a group of leading authorities in psychiatry. This bibliography will be an invaluable asset to clinicians, psychiatric educators, and psychiatric residents who want to keep abreast of this rapidly expanding field.
