From our regular book review column.

On the basis of the title of this book, one might expect that it would focus solely on child and adolescent manifestations of psychiatric disorders that typically occur during adulthood. As expected, this book does have chapters dedicated to the topics of schizophrenia and mood and anxiety disorders in the young. However, this work contains much more than that. It also provides the reader with an appreciation of how a developmental perspective can employed to provide a greater overall understanding of psychopathology.
