Published online: 7 November 2011

This is a new version of a similar volume published over 10 years ago (The foundations of clinical psychiatry), co-edited by Bruce Singh and Sidney Bloch. The influence of the original work can be seen in the coverage of standard psychiatric topics — the history of psychiatry, perspectives of understanding mental illness, the work and role of psychiatrists, stress and coping, clinical syndromes, special clinical populations, drugs and physical treatments, psychotherapies, mental health promotion and ethics — and, perhaps, in the practitioner-centric view of the field.
