' ... this book provides a rich and comprehensive review of the many conditions know n to be associated with psychosis, which could be of great value to students and a resource for senior scientists in the field. it is thought-provoking and its treatments of provocative issues resulting from very recent research are timely and enjoyable. The book is particularly satisfying because it excels on so many levels. This includes the clear list-making organization of basic facts characteristic of the allopathic tradition, and the thoughtful attempt at integration of disparate findings into etiopathogenic explanations of signs and symptoms. Adding to this already very useful review of vast swathes of clinically oriented literature is the valiant and nuanced contextualization of otherwise typical textbook fare into the fundamental conceptual conundrm lurking at the heart of the entire book: what is schizophrenia.'
