From our regular book review column.

Psychopathology is a celebration of the extraordinary progress being achieved in the scientific study of mental disorders. It is also a celebration of the remarkable career of Professor Philip Holzman to this point. Dr. Holzman is in the process of a mid-career change at Harvard, “as he leaves lectern and mortarboard behind to pursue his research full-time”. Dr. Matthysse feels that “Philip Holzman has explored experimental psychopathology with depth and breadth unequalled in our time”. Given their stated dual mission, four Harvard academicians have collaborated in providing editorial oversight and giving birth and shape to Psychopathology.
