Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...remains in a class by itself. No other book...addresses the subject matter as completely and directly..." (Doody?s Electronic Journal, December 10, 2002)
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Howard M. Kravitz, DO, MPH (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is a comprehensive overview of concepts, methods, and research advances in psychiatric epidemiology. Originally written as a textbook for students in the Harvard Program in Psychiatric Epidemiology and Biostatistics, this revised and expanded 2nd edition remains a major resource in the field.
Purpose: The editors' objective is "to provide a comprehensive, easy to understand overview of research methods for the nonrnethodologist;" this describes parts I and 11. Parts III and IV consist of 10 chapters covering the epidemiology of major psychiatric disorders as well as geriatric and child/adolescent psychiatric epidemiology. The authors have masterfully synthesized a voluminous literature into a set of lively and informative narratives that reveal at once the importance of psychiatric epidemiology and its role in understanding cause and pathogenesis and in studying interventions. We should expect nothing less — each member of the book's "distinguished faculty," as the editors refer to their contributors, is both a leading educator and a researcher in the field.
Audience: The editors' targeted audience is students of psychiatric epidemiology, psychiatric residents, general psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals. To this list, I would add students in graduate programs in public health. This book will provide its readers with a broad perspective of the field and help them understand why it is an intrinsically important component of public health.
Features: The book consists of four parts. The first two, study designs and methods (Part I) and assessment (Part II), focus on epidemiologic methods pertinent to psychiatric epidemiology. The second two parts, as mentioned above, are devoted to clinical entities (Part III) and special populations (Part IV). Three chapters have been removed from this edition (historical overview; ECA background and summary of findings; comorbidity). Added are chapters on pharmacoepidemiology, developmental epidemiology, the future of psychiatric epidemiology, the National Comorbidity Survey, first-onset mania, and child mental disorders. Other chapters have been revised and updated, some extensively and others cosmetically. Figures and tables enhance the narrative text. An appendix at the end of the chapter on psychiatric genetics provides an essential glossary of terms.
Assessment: This book remains in a class by itself. No other book in the field addresses the subject matter as completely and directly. Now four chapters and 250 pages longer, the book introduces the reader to the richness of the field — a richness in both developing methodologic rigor and accumulating strength of data. For anyone who wishes to acquaint him/herself with the methods and findings in psychiatric epidemiology, this is the place to start — with the newly revised second edition.

Shirley Hartlage
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. 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. 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. 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. 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 inpsychiatric 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.
From The Critics
This textbook provides an overview of the concepts, methods, and research advances in the field of psychiatric epidemiology. It outlines basic research strategies and analytic methods, discusses assessment and diagnosis, and describes the epidemiological evidence for major psychiatric disorders. The book assumes no formal clinical training or extensive knowledge of quantitative research methods. Contributors include researchers from the United States and Europe. Annotation c.
