Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

Much praise is warranted for the editors’ masterful work in updating their fine second edition of the Handbook of Developmental Psychopathology, which was published by Kluwer Academic/Plenum Publishers in 2000. This newly reworked edition of a classic text, which was originally edited approximately 10 years ago by Michael Lewis, Ph.D., and Suzanne M. Miller, Ph.D., has added an editor, Arnold J. Sameroff, M.D., to expand the presentation of developmental psychopathology. Chapter authors define developmental psychopathology as "the study of change and development in maladaptive behavior and process". It involves transformations and individual differences in outcomes.
