The Fragmented Personality presents new model for caring for patients with personality disorder in post-modern society. In contrast to the static classifications of personality pathology, the authors' approach yields a personalized diagnosis that is contextual, dimensional, and time-specific and at the same time provides information about the current position of the individual in relation to the important components of personality functioning. In this model of dimensional diagnostics, two intersecting coordinates, one representing the person's level of functioning (the "what" of the diagnosis) and the other his/her adaptive style (the "how" of the diagnosis) are cross matched in the unit of time. This gives the psychiatrist precise milestones for monitoring progress in therapy. Why does this matter for psychiatry in post-modern society? Drs. Svrakic and Jovanovic argue that the ideals of mental health traditionally have been stability and integrity. In the context of the postmodern world, these ideals may sound outdated, possibly even implying inflexibility or narrow mindedness. The postmodern "fragmented self" is a natural, adaptive answer to the changing existential milieu of humans. This fragmented, decentered self consists of incoherent and abstract images, not derived solely from traditional social interactions, but created by the postmodern culture. Borderline personality is fragmented at its unconscious core of internalized object relations, resulting in specific borderline psychopathologies or a "fragmented personality." Drs. Svrakic and Jovanovic analyze the impact of recent dramatic social transitions on adaptive tasks, personality and psychopathology. They introduce the concepts of monothematic self of the conservative era and the multi-thematic self of the postmodern era and discuss their relevance to the changing concepts of psychopathology. The authors argue that the conservative society, with strong nuclear family and strict ethical and religious norms, favored the psychopathology of neuroses centered around guilt, including guilt for not fitting the preapproved social norms. With the liberalization of normative pressures in the postmodern period, the adaptive task has changed into "what to choose" among many accepted alternatives, creating uncertainty of choice. This uncertainty, together with the non-directive society, favors the psychopathology of personality disorder, and indeed, the prevalence of personality disorder has increased in the postmodern period. In addition to discussing their conceptual model, the authors provide detailed practical guidelines for the diagnosis, differential diagnosis, and treatment when using their model in the management of personality disorder. They answer practical questions that clinicians frequently ask about etiology, psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy of personality disorder. The authors also detail Reconstructive Interpersonal Therapy (RIT), their variant of interpersonal psychotherapy which integrates humanistic and psychoanalytical paradigms in the treatment of personality disorder.

The author reflects on his 25 years of work in the personality disorders. He reviews some of the most significant ideas be set forth and wonders out loud how they will cross over into the new millennium. Most have stood the test of time and indeed will serve as a strong foundation for the work that is to come; some have gone through a healthy evolution. A unique highlight is the inclusion of a comprehensive report of a six-year course of psychoanalytic psychotherapy with a patient who has a closet narcissistic defence against neurosis.

Current psychiatric research is domintaed by taxonomies that emphasise the discontinuities and differences betweeen diseases rather than continuities and similarities. In thisd environment it may see rather 'heretical' to use words like 'Neurposis' in a professional psychiatric context.However, the authors of this booo posit the view that much more can be learned from taking a broad, dimentional view of neurotic disorders in elderly people rather than by adopting the narrow, categorical approach of, for example, the DSM classifications. To this end the book is organized by areasof interest: epidemiology; clinical assessment an diagnosis; the clinical relationship with physical ill-health; psychosocial factors, psychological treatment, both behavioural and dynamic; and physical treatments. In addition, there are chapters on personality, alcohol and drug abuse, eatingdisorders, sex, and sleep in the elderly. Disturbances and disorders in these areas frequently aggravate and complicate neurotic disorders in old age, and it is important that they are considered in this context.This book will help any psychiatrist improve their skills in this area and improve the quality of care they provide their elderly patients.

Seven years ago, the first edition of HANDBOOK OF AFFECTIVE DISORDERS immediately met with critical acclaim. Considered the standard reference work, The American Journal of Psychiatry suggested, ``If the reader plans to buy only one book on affective disorders, this book should be the one.'' Since that time, the field has advanced considerably, particularly in relation to the basic sciences. Bringing the reader up to date, this Second Edition has been entirely revised: More than half the chapters have been rewritten by new authors; the others have been thoroughly reworked to reflect the changes in the field; and the volume features entirely new chapters on such topics as neuropsychology and imaging, studies of sleep, seasonal affective disorders, maintenance treatment, interpersonal psychotherapy, and transcultural aspects. Designed for easy reference, this large-format, double-column work is divided into five sections. Covering descriptive aspects of affective disorders, Part I covers the symptomatology and assessment of depression and mania; distinctions between bipolar and unipolar disorders; and the relationship of anxiety disorders to depression. Also discussed are concepts, diagnosis, and classification of affective disorders, as well as their history. Part II, on etiology, first presents contributions that examine how genetics, life events, psychodynamics, and early environment relate to the incidence of affective disorders, and then discusses neurobiological and neuropsychological factors. Utilizing this same broad perspective, Part III explores major biological interventions--including ECT and psychosurgery--and Part IV discusses psychotherapeutic, cognitive, and social approaches to treatment. The final section, focuses on such special issues as transcultural problems, SAD, and suicide. Chapters also examine the relationship of depression to childbirth, childhood and adolescent turmoil, and treatment in primary care and medical settings. Distinctive in its unexcelled coverage of the most common psychiatric disorders, Dr. Paykel's HANDBOOK OF AFFECTIVE DISORDERS: SECOND EDITION is a timely and necessary resource for clinicians, researchers, and students in psychiatry, psychology, nursing, social work, and related mental health and medical disciplines.
