Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Shirley Hartlage, PhD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This book provides an introduction to current research methods and findings in the field of psychiatric epidemiology. After a historical overview, main sections include research methods in epidemiology, basic topics in assessment, and the epidemiology of major adult psychiatric disorders.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a comprehensive yet understandable overview of methods and substantive information in psychiatric epidemiology. This is an important objective because no single textbook encompasses the field, is written on an appropriate level for graduate students, and focuses on psychiatry. The book largely meets this purpose.
Audience: The book is written primarily for students planning to become researchers in psychiatric epidemiology and biostatistics and for psychiatric residents and junior faculty of teaching hospitals who seek knowledge about psychiatric epidemiology and research design. It should also be useful to investigators wanting an introduction to topics in psychiatric epidemiology and to those who desire summary information on rates of common psychiatric disorders. Authors include many top investigators in the field today.
Features: The book contains ample tables and figures summarizing results of epidemiologic studies and even providing computer commands for data analyses along with sample output. The references are current and relevant. The index generally makes information easy to locate, although there are are occasional omissions. Overall, the book has an appealing appearance. A brief appendix of genetic and statistical terms is helpful, but limited.
Assessment: This is an excellent book. It should be useful as a textbook and also as a reference book providing an introduction and overview of topics in psychiatric epidemiology to those unfamiliar with the field. It is written by prominent authors and contains up-to-date information presented clearly and directly. I highly recommend it for purchase to meet the stated objectives.
