Offering information not readily available in conventional psychiatric textbooks, this compendium brings together brief summaries of recent psychiatric literature, UK government publications, official guidelines, and other sources in a reader-friendly format that will be useful in studying for exams. Focus is on topical clinical issues, legislation, and mental health policy and reform. Within each chapter, annotated entries on articles and other sources are grouped under the same subheadings: ethical issues, general topics, policy and legislation, drug and nondrug treatment, assessment tools and rating scales, and guidelines. Each item is identified by a reference to its original source. Web addresses for related subjects are also given. The book will be useful to trainees as well as professionals wishing to keep abreast of recent evidence and guidelines. Jones is a specialist registrar in general adult and learning disabilities psychiatry, West of Scotland Higher Training Scheme, UK. Roberts is a senior registrar in forensic psychiatry, Victorian Institute of Forensic Mental Health, Australia.
