The publishers Guildford Press describe this as "The authoritative reference on depression and mood disorders, this volume brings together the field's preeminent researchers."

A quick look through shows thirty chapters arranged in four distinct parts that are themed descriptive, risks and models, depression in specific populations by age and gender and a final on prevention and treatment.
