Book Review

Review of Psychiatry in the New Millennium

Sumer Verma, MD

Published: September 1, 2001

Article Abstract

Because this piece does not have an abstract, we have provided for your benefit the first 3 sentences of the full text.

This book is a veritable tour de force! The list of names of the 3 editors and the contributors to this book reads like a who’s who in the field of American psychiatry, and their effort is no less impressive than their names. By no stretch of the imagination is this a “standard” psychiatric text. It is not a book that catalogs diagnostic categories and the most current status of their management, nor does it attempt to espouse a particular modality of treatment or approach to clinical issues. Instead, it takes a step back and critically examines the currents that have steered psychiatric practice into the new millennium.
