Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Authoritative . . . eminently readable and impressive. "-Library Journal"

"This abridged volume offers the reader a concise, current reference to psychology and related fields. The format and layout of this volume make it an easy-to-use reference tool. "-Booklist

Library Journal
A compilation of updated selections from Wolman's 12-volume International Encyclopedia (1977), this volume "is intended to serve as a basic reference book for graduate, doctoral, and postdoctoral programs" in all fields concerned with "the human mind and its ills." There is no indication whether or how much any authors participated in the condensation of articles, and while the bibliography contains some entries as late as 1994, the articles vary in timeliness. The "Hypnosis" entry has one reference dated 1948, for instance; the "Depression" entry includes a current summary of pharmacology, while those on anxiety and psychosis omit this factor, as does the index, surprisingly. Erik Erikson's developmental chart appears, but his main entry by Robert Coles is reduced to a short paragraph; Charles Darwin gets four lines. This hodge-podge is not suitable for advanced students; nor can it be recommended for general readers given the recent, excellent Concise Encyclopedia of Psychology (LJ 5/15/96. 2d ed.).E. James Lieberman, George Washington Univ. Sch. of Medicine, Washington, D.C.
Booknews
The 12-volume "Encyclopedia of Psychiatry, Psychology, Psychoanalysis, and Neurology" was published in 1977, and in 1983 the 13th Progress Volume was published. The present one-volume "Encyclopedia" is a selection of updated, shortened entries from those 13 volumes; biographical entries have been reduced in size and description of current developments in other countries has been omitted. The result is a compendium of basic information for the broad audience of students and practitioners involved with mental health. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
