Collaboratively compiled and co-edited by Anand Pandya and Craig Katz, Disaster Psychiatry: Intervening When Nightmares Come True is a selection of essays by experienced professionals concerning the difficulty of providing psychiatric help in dramatic and radically difficult settings--amid the Gaza strip, in the wake of disaster in Australia, El Salvador, India, and Turkey, or following the September 11th attacks. Firsthand accounts of pursuing the psychiatric calling in the wake of extreme trauma provide a useful model in this highly recommended anthology for students and practitioners of psychiatry. Case studies, invaluable observations, and highly accessible narrative styles make Disaster Psychiatry indispensible to academic libraries and personal psychiatric reference shelves.
