Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Review of Suicidology, 2000 sets the foundation for an evidence-based approach to one of the most pressing public health challenges of the new millennium--the prevention of suicidal behavior. Not only are our achievements acknowledged, but our limitations are as well, providing a balanced view for undergraduate and postgraduate students of suicidology." --Robert D. Goldney, MD, President, International Association for Suicide Prevention; Department of Psychiatry, University of Adelaide, Australia

"Every clinician working with psychiatric patients is on the front lines of the war against suicide. The major weapon is knowledge. This volume provides a wealth of information on patterns of suicide, risk factors, and effective treatment approaches for major psychiatric disorders. It reviews a broad landscape of research that will richly reward the reader." --J. John Mann, MD, Professor of Psychiatry Columbia University; Chief of Neuroscience, New York State Psychiatric Institute
