Disorders of personality: DSM-III, Axis II
Brings together clinical literature on personality disorders in a single source book. Coordinates and evaluates current theory on the subject in close conjunction with the new Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-III) to which the author made substantial contribution in the section on personality disorders. Presents contrasting views of the dynamics and development of each syndrome, with special attention to the newer personality syndromes such as avoidant, narcissistic, borderline, and schizotypal, as well as more common ''mixed'' personality types.
