Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(7), 575–576. Reviews the book, Schizophrenia: An Introduction to Research and Theory by Glenn Shean (1978). The author has made an effort to present the work on schizophrenia in a format rarely attempted previously–an introductory textbook. Its weaknesses appear to be related to the attempt to cover too much information. The content of the volume is often uneven. The clinical examples clarify the behaviors labeled as schizophrenic, yet the dialectics chapter confuses rather than structures the issues for the reader. Biochemical and genetic theories are briefly mentioned and inadequately explained. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
