Editorial Reviews

Lori R. Solaro
This guide clarifies and expands the diagnosis and classification of infant, child, and adolescent psychopathology as described in the DSM IV. The intent is to update this handbook based on revisions in the DSM-IV and encourage reliable diagnosis of childhood psychiatric disorders. This book is a useful reference tool for child psychiatrists and child psychiatry fellows. The text presents numerous tables that explain and organize the written material. The references are up-to-date. This handbook discusses not only the DSM-IV changes regarding child psychiatry, but also reviews specific diagnostic issues in childhood psychiatric disorders more commonly described for adults but occurring in children such as schizophrenia and obsessive compulsive disorder. The appendixes present an overview of diagnostic interviews and rating scales and comparisons to ICD-10. The case vignettes clearly illustrate the text. This book is useful as a review or as a reference for practitioners of child psychiatry.

Deals with the relationship between linguistics and comparative literature and the possibilities of machine translation and machine- assisted translation, asking whether it is possible in principle to construct a fully automatic system to translate unrestricted general language and exploring the implications of such a system. Includes a glossary. Of interest to scholars in translation and linguistics, as well as machine translation developers and theorists. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
