The fifth edition (1989) is cited in Brandon-Hill . The sixth edition is likely the first major textbook to discuss and critique the new DSM-IV terminology and to describe all mental disorders according to the current DSM-IV diagnostic criteria. Most chapters have been rewritten, and this edition has 650 more pages than its predecessor because of the inclusion of more written material, illustrations, and tables, including all the tables from DSM-IV. Nearly every diagnostic category and condition covered in DSM-IV is illustrated with a case example. Color illustrations of all the major drugs currently used in psychiatry in their various dosage forms have been added and include the latest drugs available in the US.
