Throughout seven prior editions, "CTP" has defined the field of psychiatry. Every edition has garnered accolades from the highest levels of psychiatry, and established the text as the authoritative text for the specialty. Carefully edited to include definitions and diagnostic criteria of mental disorders used in ICD-10 and the DSM-IV-TR, the Eighth Edition features approximately 450 contributors and section editors. A wealth of new information and updated coverage makes the Eighth Edition an essential cornerstone for every psychiatric practice. New information includes information on post-traumatic stress disorder after the attacks of September 11, 2001, and updated information on the many new psychotropic drugs.

Review quote

, Jack D. Barchas, M.D. -- "A superb achievement of value to the entire field of psychiatry. Through brilliant editing, CTP has been thoughtfully developed and shaped with outstanding contributors representing the full range of approaches to knowledge and practice. It truly lives up to its name. A totally up-to-date classic. CTP has become the definitive text." Jack D. Barchas, MD, Chair, Department of Psychiatry, Weill Cornell Medical Center, New York-Presbyterian Hospital , Alan I. Green, M.D. -- "The best yet! The new 8th edition of the standard reference text in psychiatry covers the field in a manner true to its title-it is 'comprehensive', beautifully demonstrating the rapidly growing breadth of the field. The authors comprise a veritable who's who of psychiatry, and yet, for such a multi-authored text, it reads smoothly. This two-volume text belongs on the shelf of practitioners, trainees, and students. The editors get my heartiest congratulations for topping themselves yet again." Alan I. Green, MD, Raymond Sobel Professor of Psychiatry, Chairman, Department of Psychiatry, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center , Peter F. Buckley, MD, Professor and Chairman, Department of Psychiatry and Health Behavior, Medical College of Georgia -- "Comprehensive Textbook of Psychiatry is, by any measure, a seminal and enduring text. The 8th edition does justice to its fore bearers and is, as its title would suggest, authoritative and 'state-of-the-art.'"-Peter F. Buckley, MD, Professor and Chairman, Department of Psychiatry and Health Behavior, Medical College of Georgia
