About the Authors

Dan J. Stein, M.D., Ph.D., is Professor and Chair of Psychiatry at the University of Cape Town in South Africa and also has an affiliation with the University of Florida, Gainesville.

David J. Kupfer, M.D., is Thomas Detre Professor and Chair of the Department of Psychiatry at Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic at the University of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Alan F. Schatzberg, M.D., is Kenneth T. Norris, Jr., Professor and Chairman in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University School of Medicine in Stanford, California.

This is an overall and up-to-date review of all aspects of mood disorders, including epidemiology, pathophysiology, and clinical presentation as well as different treatment interventions, including psychotherapy. The book offers the latest science in the field and also guidance for proper diagnosis and treatment of mood disorders in daily practice. Not only should libraries have this book as a standard edition on their shelves, but also psychiatrists in the field should guide their practice [by consulting] the newest research in this textbook on mood disorders.—Siegfried Kasper, M.D., Professor and Chair, Department of General Psychiatry, Medical University of Vienna, Austria

This is a comprehensive book covering the state of progress on mood disorders, from the molecular biology to the day-to-day clinical aspects. Written and edited by internationally recognized clinician-researchers on mood disorders, it is an outstanding contribution to the field and will become a standard textbook in this important clinical domain. . . . It will surely become a benchmark for all other mood disorder textbooks. I highly recommend it!—Doody's Review Service, 1/1/2007

This is a book that will stand the test of time. With eight section editors, whose names are household words throughout psychiatry, 99 highly qualified contributors to 43 chapters, and 778 pages, it is one big book. And why not? As the editors point out: “Mood disorders are the bread and butter of clinical psychiatry: Just about everything you need to know about the subject is at your fingertips. The editing is excellent. The index is first-rate. Every chapter is referenced generously….If you want the most complete and timely text devoted entirely to mood disorders, this is the book for you. One would be hard pout to find a major omission that could not be explained by that unavoidable lag in publishing that is inherent in all books. I see its audience to be one with a clinical rather than basic research orientation, one that extends beyond psychiatry to a considerably wider range of mental health professionals (including those in primary care who are well immersed in recognizing, diagnosing, and treating disorders of mood).—American Journal of Psychiatry, 1/1/2007
