"Since Benedict Morel first established the diagnostic category of dementia praecox in 1860, each generation has attempted to characterize in its own terms the central disorder of psychiatry. Thus, in 1893 Emil Kraepelin distinguished dementia praecox from manic-depressive illness in descriptive terms, in 1911 Eugen Bleuler provided a dynamic perspective and renamed the illness schizophrenia, and in the 1960s Arvid Carlsson gave us the first biochemical insights into the disorder. Lieberman, Stroup, and Perkins now provide us with the textbook that will mark this generation. Their book is a must for every psychiatrist who wants to understand where modern research and clinical practice now stand, and where it needs to go in the next decade to ameliorate the suffering of patients with schizophrenia and their families. Taking a broad, scholarly, and synthetic approach to schizophrenia, this remarkable book outlines our understanding of how specific candidate genes can interact with environmental stressors to give rise to anatomical alterations during development that lead to the family of symptoms that characterize the disorder."-- "Eric R. Kandel, M.D., Fred Kavli Professor and Director, Kavli Institute for Brain Science, and Senior Investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute Center for Neurobiology and Behavior, Department of Psychiatry, Biochemistry, and Physiology, Columbia University, New York, New York"
