Conceived in the early 1970s to study the phenomenology, diagnosis, genetics, and clinical course of depression, the NIMH Collaborative Depression Study (CDS) has influenced research and practice since its inception.

Nowhere else can clinicians find such detailed longitudinal data, combined with astute clinical analysis of the current research. The volume offers: Historical background on how psychodynamic psychiatry was overtaken by psychobiological perspectives, and the challenges and controversies that gave rise to the CDS, providing the context necessary to understand the profession's development to the present day. A wealth of information on nosology, natural history, phenomenology, and treatment response in depressive and bipolar disorders.
