Overview

Covering both basic science and clinical practice, this new edition of the definitive psychopharmacology text called “remarkable and scholarly” by JAMA, “excellent” by American Journal of Psychiatry, and “a major achievement” by Psychiatric Times has been thoroughly updated and expanded to keep you current with the explosive growth in this burgeoning field.

In four major sections, The American Psychiatric Press Textbook of Psychopharmacology, Second Editioncovers:

  • Principles of Psychopharmacology—providing the necessary background in neurobiology and pharmacology
  • Classes of Psychiatric Treatment: Animal and Human Pharmacology—presenting information by classes of drugs
  • Clinical Psychobiology and Psychiatric Syndromes—reviewing the data on the biological underpinnings of specific disorders for a better understanding of current psychopharmacological approaches
  • Psychopharmacological Treatment—providing specific information about drug selection and their prescription

Complete with a comprehensive and easy-to-use index, this new edition succeeds the first as the definitive textbook on psychopharmacology.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Joseph G. Fanelli, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This comprehensive textbook of psychopharmacology, encompassing basic sciences, drug classes, mechanisms of psychiatric illnesses, and treatment approaches is authored by both senior, well-established experts and senior-junior coauthor teams.
Purpose: The purpose is to present a comprehensive collection of information concerning past and present developments in the field of psychopharmacology and biological psychiatry, with clinical applicability to psychiatrists in training and in practice.
Audience: Intended primarily for psychiatrists and secondarily for psychiatry residents, the book appears best suited as a reference for general, community-based psychiatrists and primary care physicians and as a teaching tool for medical students and psychiatric residents.
Features: The book is somewhat excessively physically large, owing to type and margin sizes. It features generally current, pertinent reference citations, along with black-and-white figures and tables, well-executed, though lacking in quantity, given the nature of the text.
Assessment: This is a very useful book for general psychiatrists and psychiatric residents as well as for academic psychiatrists involved in education of these same individuals. Broad in scope, though somewhat superficial at times, the work has a large number of notable contributors. Continual rapid development and release of psychiatric drugs makes any text covering this area obsolete fairly quickly, but other areas covered allow for continued relevance. There are a number of similar, recently published books, but, because this is a publication of the American Psychiatric Association, it should be in bookstores and libraries.

Journal of the American Medical Association
For sophisticated psychiatrist practitioners The American Psychiatric Press Textbook of Psychopharmacology is still one of the best available texts on psychopharmacology.
Booknews
A textbook in four major sections. The first, Principles of Psychopharmacology, provides a theoretical background. The second section, Classes of Psychiatric Drugs: Animal and Human Pharmacology, presents information by classes of drugs. The third section, Clinical Psychobiology and Psychiatric Syndromes, reviews data on the biological underpinnings of specific disorders. The fourth section, Psychopharmacological Treatment, reviews state-of-the-art therapeutic approaches to patients with major psychiatric disorders as well as to those in specific age groups or circumstances. There is also an appendix on promising new agents in Europe and Canada. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
