Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(11), 871–873. Reviews the books, Psychopharmacology: From Theory to Practice edited by Jack D. Barchas, Philip A. Berger, Roland D. Ciaranello, and Glen R. Elliott (1977) and Current Developments in Psychopharmacology, Vol. 4 edited by Walter B. Essman and L. Valzelli (1977). The editors of first book have amply succeeded in accomplishing their aim of integrating the basic science and clinical aspects of psychopharmacology into a single manageable text. This book should be considered obligatory reading for any psychiatrist who prescribes psychotropic agents and for anyone interested in the current status of biological psychiatry and drug therapy. The second book covers both clinical and basic research, it is not aimed at such a general audience as the preceding text. The hope of the editors is to enable current investigators and practitioners to offer insightful overviews, new insight, and methodological or conceptual direction to a topic that reflects a current development.
