Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(11), 857–858. Reviews the book, Psychobiology and Human Disease by Herbert Weiner (1977). This book serves as a model for an integrative approach to understanding disease or what has recently been referred to as behavioral medicine. He states on the first page of this impressive work that the “primary objective in the presentation of this volume has been to present and integrate recent data obtained by epidemiologists, sociologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, psychoanalysts, neurobiologists, and physiologists” in examining hypotheses central to the field of psychosomatic medicine. This is a scholarly work that could only have been prepared by someone with a broad interdisciplinary background such as Weiner's. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
