The 'New Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry' is one of the leading reference works in this field. Bringing together over 200 chapters from the leading figures in the discipline, it presents a comprehensive account of clinical psychiatry, with reference to its scientific basis and to the patient'sperspective throughout. In the 8 years since publication of the first edition, many new and exciting developments have occurred in the biological sciences, which are having a major impact on how we study and practise psychiatry. In addition, psychiatry has fostered closer ties with philosophy, and these are leading tohealthy discussions about how we should diagnose and treat mental illness. This new edition recognises these and other developments. Throughout, accounts of clinical practice are linked to the underlying science, and to the evidence for the efficacy of treatments. Physical and psychological treatments, including psychodynamic approaches, are covered in depth. The history of psychiatry, ethics, public health aspects, and publicattitudes to psychiatry and to patients are all given due attention. The 'New Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry' will continue to serve the profession as an authoritative and comprehensive reference.
