This is a new edition of a successful introductory textbook on the
subject of psychiatry. Clearly written and rich in pedagogic
features – such as summary boxes, clinical cases and other aid
memoirs – this book is tailored to the learning needs of those
entering the discipline for the first time. Particularly suitable
for medical students, this book will also act as a ‘primer’ for
post-graduates first entering the speciality with a view to a
long-term career in the discipline.
