"The Textbook of Psychiatric Epidemiology is a timely, up-to-date, and comprehensive book covering all aspects of the science of epidemiology as related to psychiatric disorders. Overall, this is a well written, wel-organized book that I highly recommend to all psychiatrists and neuroscientists who are interested in the underpinning of psychiatric epidemiology." (Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, 2013)
“Overall, this book provides a thorough and understandable introduction to the field of psychiatric epidemiology, suitable for students wishing to become familiar with up-to-date applications and findings in psychiatry as they relate to public health and epidemiology.” (Doody’s, 6 April 2012)
"This 3rd edition is a welcome return for this informative textbook, which will be of interest to a wide readership through its extensive scope. It covers a range of areas relevant to epidemiology and beyond with what is now the standard format involving expert authors or teams." (Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica, 2012)
"So I started this review process with a great deal of skepticism. However, during this process I have ended up reading about areas outside my own main research field with much interest, and chapters within my own areas with much pleasure and admiration for the contributions; and, I have found myself recommending individual chapters again and again to students and other people with whom I, during this period, have discussed specific projects. So, much to my own surprise, I end up warmly recommending this book to anyone who has a professional interest in the epidemiology of, and risk factors for psychiatric disorders, and a recurring need for a fast reference to a very comprehensive array of knowledge." Read the full review. (Acta Neuropsychiatrica, 2012)
From the Back Cover
As in the first and second editions, our objective is to provide a comprehensive, easy to understand overview of research methods for the non-specialist. Our target audience is students of psychiatric epidemiology, psychiatric residents, general psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals.
The book features a new editor, Peter Jones, from the University of Cambridge, who joins the successful US team of Ming Tsuang and Mauricio Tohen. Contributors are drawn mainly from the US as before, with new recruits from Europe and Asia added to widen the appeal of the textbook.
