Book Description: "Extensively revised, updated, and ... restructured, the Fourth Edition of this prestigious text incorporates the latest basic and clinical advances in neuropsychopharmacology and identifies promising new areas of investigation. In the tradition of its acclaimed predecessors, this volume establishes a critical bridge connecting the principles of molecular and cellular biology with the etiology, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of neuropsychiatric disorders and substance abuse. More than any other work in the field, Psychopharmacology consistently and successfully integrates basic neurobiology, biological psychiatry, and clinical psychopharmacology.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jeffrey S. Ross, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is the fourth edition of a widely consulted reference textbook of psychopharmacology first published by the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ACNP) in 1968. This edition extensively updates the previous 1987 edition and remains authored by the world's leading authorities in psychopharmacology.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a thoroughly comprehensive overview of the preclinical and clinical aspects of psychopharmacology. Although these lofty objectives may sound redundant, there appears to be no other resource as comprehensively presented as this fourth edition. This is the gold-standard reference in this field.
Audience: The intended audience appears to be mainly neuropsychopharmacologists whose predominant work includes either preclinical research or clinical psychopharmacologic treatment. Though dedicated psychotherapists may find it overly inclusive for their needs, it is nevertheless easily understandable by any clinician with a basic biological knowledge of the brain.
Features: The book includes excellent illustrations as well as occasional color photographs of the brain. The majority of the references are new since the last edition in 1987, and represent the salient research literature on the topic. The table of contents and index are comprehensive and logically organized, including three main sections of preclinical, clinical, and special topics. The book appears large and impressive, notably characteristic of an elegant and sophisticated reference textbook.
Assessment: Clearly, this book, written by the world's foremost experts in neuropsychopharmacology, should be considered one of the definitive reference textbooks in this field. It is vastly updated from its predecessor and comes in the midst of an explosion of neuropharmacologic research. It should be considered an essential part of any psychopharmacologist's library, though the career psychotherapist may find it too detailed. Psychiatry residents should also consider buying this book, which will undoubtedly be used extensively as psychiatrists' roles become increasingly narrowed into an exclusive psychopharmacologic domain.

Like its predecessors, this fourth edition redefines the scientific field of neuropsychopharmacology for its parent organization, the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology. A slight departure from its predecessors is the attempt to provide a more comprehensive overview of the clinical and preclinical arms of the field. Here the approach is designed first to provide new scholars with overviews of preclinical and clinical psychopharmacology, and then more detailed coverage to understand the methods by which data in each of these arms are assessed in research. The introductory sections provide a basis for the detailed coverage of the enormous amounts of progress that have been achieved since the previous volume. Finally, the coverage builds upon these foundations with assessments of the most recent cross-cutting issues. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
