"Gotlib and Hammen have assembled an outstanding group of experts on depressive disorders. This fully updated second edition offers comprehensive, authoritative coverage of diagnosis, epidemiology, genetics, neurobiology, affective neuroscience, treatment, and illness across the lifespan, among other topics. This volume will appeal to practicing psychologists and psychiatrists, depression researchers, graduate students, and residents. It is the reference for scientific and practical knowledge on depression." - Richard C. Shelton, James G. Blakemore Research Professor of Psychiatry, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Tennessee, USA
"An impressive array of distinguished researchers has come together once more to update this comprehensive book on the perplexing human problem of depression. The volume presents detailed information on the human costs of depression as well as its multiple etiologies, recalcitrant nature, differing presentation across ages and cultures, and, of course, the psychosocial and pharmacological avenues for treating it. The second edition provides good depth of content on current neuroscience and genetics, without neglecting the importance of stress and the interpersonal and social context. Not only does this handbook capture the explosion of knowledge and increasing sophistication of research in the field, but it also focuses attention on what still needs to be done to understand and serve the unmet needs of people with depression in our communities." - Kia J. Bentley, Director, PhD Program in Social Work, Virginia Commonwealth University, USA
"Identifying, organizing, and expanding on the cutting-edge studies that define the field, Gotlib and Hammen once again demonstrate the breadth and depth of their knowledge of depression. This thorough and readable handbook allows both beginning and advanced practitioners and researchers to understand what is known about depression and see what is yet to be discovered." - Robin B. Jarrett, Elizabeth H. Penn Professorship in Clinical Psychology, Department of Psychiatry, The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, USA
