On the cusp of newest edition of the DSM, the field of personality disorders is thriving and productive. This is certainly a time of major transition for the classification, study, and treatment of personality disorders, as the personality disorders section of the DSM is undergoing major revision, leaving researchers and clinicians to wonder whether their area of specialty in the field of personality disorders will be retained, deleted, or revised in DSM-5.In advance of DSM-5, The Oxford Handbook of Personality Disorders provides a summary of the latest information concerning the diagnosis, assessment, construct validity, etiology, pathology, and treatment of personality disorders. Bringing together contributions from leading scholars, researchers, and clinicians from a wide variety of theoretical perspectives, this volume includes: - Chapters devoted to personality disorders proposed for retention in DSM-5- Chapters concerning personality disorders that are slated for deletion- Chapters concerning three that have never obtained or had previously lost official recognition (i.e. passive-aggressive, depressive, and racist)- Chapters authored by members of the DSM-5 Personality Disorders Work Group, which succinctly outline and explain the proposals, as well as chapters by authors who raise significant questions and concerns (often differing) about these proposals- Special coverage of largely neglected areas of investigation (i.e. childhood antecedents of personality disorder, cross-cultural validity)- Controversial areas for the DSM, such as schizotypal personality disorder, narcissism, depressive personality disorder, dependent personality disorder, and dimensional classificationIn this time of transition, scholarship on personality disorders is proliferating, making this comprehensive, timely handbook the perfect resource for students, researchers, and clinical psychologists.

The Oxford Handbook of Personality Disorders testifies to the fields vitality: It documents a rich and varied literature spanning basic biological mechanisms and cultural influences that will appeal to researchers and clinicians alike and indeed to anyone with an interest in mental health seeking an in-depth understanding of personality disorder. Anyone who has read the 38 chapters cannot but be impressed by the wealth of information that has accumulated in the30-plus years since the third edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSMIII; American Psychiatric Association, 1980) was published... It provides a comprehensive overview so that anyone reading it will be well informed about the current state of personality disorder researchand practice. I am not familiar with any other volume that is as comprehensive or as up to date.
