Overview

The rising prevalence of dementia in the population continues to pose a serious public health challenge in both the developed and the developing world. Previous editions of Dementia have become acknowledged as a key 'gold standard' work in this field, and have had a genuinely international approach. The third edition has been fully revised and updated to reflect the most recent advances in the rapidly developing field of dementia research, adding further important detail to this already authoritative and detailed text.

New material on mild cognitive impairment has been included, and the latest developments in areas such as service development and carer research are also covered. All the chapters have been revised to include the most up-to-date research in their field.

This is an essential work of reference for specialists in old age psychiatry, neurology, and health care of the elderly. It should also be a useful resource for others working with patients with dementia, including general practitioners, nurses,

psychologists, and other allied health professionals.

This book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Michael J. Schrift
This book on dementia incorporates the viewpoints of a variety of international experts and serves as a comprehensive survey of the current state of the field. The book's purpose is an attempt, in a single volume, to encompass all aspects of all types of dementia. According to the authors, because this is an expanding field, they attempted to concentrate on a ""solid core of information"" that is likely to remain part of the mainstream view of the field. The authors do not specifically mention who the intended target audience should be. The book would be useful to neurology and psychiatry residents, fellows in neuropsychiatry, behavioral neurology, geriatric medicine, geriatric psychiatry, psychologists, and other practitioners who care for the elderly. The book contains 53 chapters and is divided into two parts focusing on dementia of the Alzheimer type and non-Alzheimer dementia. The book covers the clinical features, the natural history of Alzheimer dementia, etiology, diagnosis, neuroimaging, therapeutic strategies, services for demented patients, the vascular dementias, dementia in psychiatric syndromes, dementia in neurological syndromes, and recently described dementia such as dementia of the frontal lobe type. This is a very useful book for anyone who diagnoses and treats patients with dementia. It brings together internationally known experts in the field and gives a broad perspective in this multifaceted problem. This book fills a need for a comprehensive textbook on this subject. I highly recommend it.
