9780195135794: Manic-Depressive Illness: Bipolar Disorders and Recurrent Depression, 2nd Edition

The revolution in psychiatry that began in earnest in the 1960s led to dramatic advances in the understanding and treatment of manic-depressive illness. Hailed as the most outstanding book in the biomedical sciences when it was originally published in 1990, Manic-Depressive Illness was the first to survey this massive body of evidence comprehensively and to assess its meaning for both clinician and scientist. It also vividly portrayed the experience of manic-depressive illness from the perspective of patients, their doctors, and researchers. Encompassing an understanding about the illness as Kraeplin conceived of it- about its cyclical course and about the essential unity of its bipolar and recurrent unipolar forms- the book has become the definitive work on the topic, revered by both specialists and nonspecialists alike.

Now, in this magnificent second edition, Drs. Frederick Goodwin and Kay Redfield Jamison bring their unique contribution to mental health science into the 21st century. In collaboration with a team of other leading scientists, a collaboration designed to preserve the unified voice of the two authors, they exhaustively review the biological and genetic literature that has dominated the field in recent years and incorporate cutting-edge research conducted since publication of the first edition. They also update their surveys of psychological and epidemiological evidence, as well as that pertaining to diagnostic issues, course, and outcome, and they offer practical guidelines for differential diagnosis and clinical management. The medical treatment of manic and depressive episodes is described, strategies for preventing future episodes are given in detail, and psychotherapeutic issues common in this illness are considered. Special emphasis is given to fostering compliance with medication regimens and treating patients who abuse drugs and alcohol or who pose a risk of suicide. This book, unique in the way that it retains the distinct perspective of its authors while assuring the maximum in-depth coverage of a vastly expanded base of scientific knowledge, will be a valuable and necessary addition to the libraries of psychiatrists and other physicians, psychologists, clinical social workers, neuroscientists, pharmacologists, and the patients and families who live with manic-depressive illness.

Review:


"Manic-Depressive Illness stands above other selections in the field because of its organization and the clarity of presentation, in addition to the way it reveals the most cutting-edge thinking in the field. In sum, these attributes, when stitched together, render this book the authority in its field."--The Electric Review


"This is the Bible of manic-depressive illness and recurrent depression. It is the secure basis for all kinds of scientific and clinical expeditions. It unifies an immense past knowledge with the standards of the present and creates the roadmap for the future. In this book, no field and no aspect of mood and mood-related disorders remain uncovered."-Prof. Dr. med. Dr. h. c. Andreas Marneros, Psychiatric University Clinic, Halle-Wittenberg/Germany


"This definitive text on MDI/bipolar disorders documents what we have learned circa 2006, presents it clearly and logically, and should stimulate serious students of these disorders to seek and learn more."--Doody's, a 5 Star Review


"...Goodwin and Jamison have harvested the intellectual growth which the earlier volume has spawned and published an extraordinary second edition. Here the authors capture once again the whole range of the current views of these disorders in a way that points to the future, not only for those who treat people with these recurrent illnesses but for all interested in understanding the enormous scientific growth that the psychobiology of affect has experienced in the last decade and a half. This book has no peer. It again has set the standard by which all textbooks in psychiatry will be judged."--Eric R. Kandel, MD, University Professor of Physiology and Cell Biophysics, Psychiatry, Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics at Columbia University and winner of the 2000 Nobel Prize for Medicine


"In a dazzlingly lucid, extensively researched, and amazingly comprehensive display of scholarship, this book remains the authoritative masterpiece on manic-depressive illness. The authors have mastered the complex jargon of the geneticist, the neuroscientist, and the futurist, covering pertinent studies from the drosophila circadian clock mechanisms to the growing neuropathological findings in post-mortem brains. It truly is a masterpiece of writing clarity."--Floyd Bloom. MD, Professor Emeritus, Molecular and Integrative Neuroscience Department, The Scripps Research Institute, and former Editor-in-Chief of the journal Science


"We are grateful to have an updated edition of the classic work on bipolar disorder; with great expertise and fine judgment the authors have admirably condensed the findings of the exponential development in the literature and international scientific endeavor into a single volume. Like the previous edition, it sets the gold standard for the general reader, students, teachers, scientists, health care professionals, and for patients and their relatives."--Jules Angst, MD, Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry, University of Zurich, Switzerland


"This is the Bible of manic-depressive illness and recurrent depression. It is the secure basis for all kinds of scientific and clinical expeditions. It unifies an immense past knowledge with the standards of the present and creates the roadmap for the future. In this book, no field and no aspect of mood and mood-related disorders remain uncovered."-Prof. Dr. med. Dr. h. c. Andreas Marneros, Psychiatric University Clinic, Halle-Wittenberg/Germany

"This definitive text on MDI/bipolar disorders documents what we have learned circa 2006, presents it clearly and logically, and should stimulate serious students of these disorders to seek and learn more."--Doody's, a 5 Star Review


"It is still true that there is nothing quite like this textbook. Anyone with a clinical, personal, research, or academic interest in mood disorders should obtain a copy."--Journal of Clinical Psychiatry

Descrizione libro Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2010. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. The revolution in psychiatry that began in the 1950s led to dramatic advances in the understanding and treatment of manic-depressive illness also known as bipolar disorder. No other mental illness has been the subject of such extensive, clinically useful, and scientifically productive research. Hailed as the most outstanding book in the biomedical sciences when it was originally published in 1990, Manic-Depressive Illness was the first to survey this massive body of evidence comprehensively and to assess its meaning for both clinician and scientist. It also vividly portrayed the experience of manic-depressive illness from the perspective of patients, their doctors, and researchers, and recounted the torments of some of the great poets and composers whose art was almost certainly enriched, energised, and deepened by the extremes of manic-depressive illness. In this magisterial second edition, Drs.Frederick Goodwin and Kay Redfield Jamison, with the assistance of a select team of other leading scientists in the field, exhaustively review the biological and genetic literature that has dominated the field in recent years and incorporate cutting-edge research conducted since publication of the first edition.
