From our regular book review column.
The latest edition of Lewis’ historic textbook on child and
adolescent psychiatry is both modern and classic. By renaming
the text with the name of its founder, editors Andrés Martin and
Fred R. Volkmar honor the late Melvin Lewis and pay tribute to
the iconic nature of this evolving textbook. Melvin Lewis, editor
of the previous 3 editions, has left us with a compilation of
information prized by many practitioners.
