Out Of Print... Modern psychiatry is advancing on so many fronts that no one author could adequately present a comprehensive overview of the present state of theory and practice. Now this volume brings together an impressive list of 30 international contributorsincluding world authorities from Canada, France, Great Britain, Japan, Switzerland, the USA and USSR. Each chapter, written by an acknowledged expert in his field, presents what the contributor regards as the important relevant material on the subject under discussion, providing the reader with current concepts in both clinical psychiatry and biobehavioral sciences. The first section of this volume covers the Scientific, including chapters on Schizophrenia, Genetics, Nuclear Sexing, Brain Cells and Nervous Tissues, Memory, Body-Image, Hypnosis, Sleeping and Dreaming, Sensory Deprivation, Hallucinations, Model Psychoses, the Neurophysiological Basis of Thought. The second and larger section covers the Clinical, including chapters on Contributions of Clinical Psychology, Family Psychopathology and Schizophrenia, Psychoanalysis: an Evaluation, Existential Analysis, Moritas Theory of Neurosis, the Pavlovian Theoory, Learning Therapies, Group Hypnosis in the USSR, the Place Response, Psyeho-Pharrnacology, Family Psychiatry, Community Psychiatry, Transcultural Psychiatry, and Construction of Psychiatric Hospitals. This is indeed an extraordinarily comprehensive and authoritative survey. As Dr. Gene L. Usdin writes in his Introduction to this American edition, "This is a nicely balanced volume; in fact, it is truly representative of the best that there is, the maturest thinking of basic behavioral sciences and psychiatry."
