Schizophrenia is one of the most complex and puzzling diseases to affect mankind. It is the most common of the severe mental illnesses (psychoses) with an estimated prevalence of 0.5 - 1 0n the general population and accounts for a very large portion of the day to day workload of the average psychiatrist. 500f long-term psychiatric patients in mental hospitals are schizophrenic. There is a great deal of controversy about the causes, diagnosis and treatment of schizophrenia with the consequence that a huge amount of research is carried out in the field by psychiatrists, psychologists, neuroscientists and pharmacologists. For the average practising psychiatrist seeing schizophrenics on a regular basis, making sense of the vast body of information on the subject and filtering out what is of clinical relevance can be very difficult. There is a constant stream of new drugs emerging and the newer generation of drugs (the so-called atypicals) is very effective, but often expensive.The Editors (one American and one British) are both highly respected clinical psychiatrists who are probably the leading experts on schizophrenia from their respective countries and jointly have published almost 150 papers on the subject. They have brought together a strong group of contributors from the USA, UK and Europe to produce what will be an essential reference for the trainee and practising psychiatrist.The book consists of four sections; descriptive aspects, causative aspects, physical treatment
