The encyclopedia of schizophrenia and other psychotic disordersUser Review - Book Verdict
In this collection of short articles, Noll (psychology, Allentown Coll.; The Jung Cult: Origins of Charismatic Movement) explores the history, etiology, biology, and treatment of psychotic disorders. The encyclopedia's positive features include excellent references for further reading at the end of each article, a good bibliography, appendixes listing the North American and European diagnostic criteria for schizophrenia, and sources of further information on schizophrenia. But by Noll's admission, the emphasis here is almost exclusively on schizophrenia, with bipolar disorder and other psychoses receiving scant coverage. While the little snippets on such topics as "Utica Cribs" and "Vampirism, Clinical" are interesting, it is hard to imagine the reference search that would lead to them. In general, this seems like the sort of book that would be handiest in the practitioner or scholar's office. For larger academic collections.DMary Ann Hughes, Neill P.L., Pullman, WA ...
