Divided into six parts, it covers demographic and ecological surveys; life events, stress and social support; longitudinal and cohort studies; epidemiology and clinical issues; alcoholism and alcohol-related disorders; and epidemiology in mental health service planning.
Psychiatric Epidemiology will appeal to those with an interest in the history of psychiatric epidemiology and mental health.
