Library Journal Review

This book is the result of a $9 million four-year national mental health survey of Vietnam veterans' readjustment completed in November 1988. One of the survey's major tasks was to provide a true assessment of the extent and implication of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and recovery. Sponsored by the Veterans' Administration, research was carried out by Research Triangle Institute, Louis Harris and Associates, the Graduate Center of CUNY, Langly Porter Psychiatric Institute, the Hispanic Research Center of San Diego State University, and Equifax, Inc. The original technical report was published in an edition of only 150 copies. This revised report, with additional commentary and an appendix, provides comprehensive statistical information that should help influence public policy toward veterans for the next decade. It includes an epilog ``self-guide'' to symptoms and a directory of treatment resources. Recommended for larger collections.-- William Abrams, Portland State Univ. Lib., Ore. (c) Copyright 2010.

CHOICE Review

The war in Vietnam is an ongoing psychological reality for many of the men and women who served their country during this war to stop communism in Southeast Asia. This book presents findings from the National Vietnam Veterans Readjustment Study, which was mandated by Congress in 1983 to establish the prevalence and incidence of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in Vietnam veterans. Chapter 1 provides background and information on the study design. The next ten chapters report the findings of the study. Each chapter has an effectively written commentary and chapter overview. The last chapter offers compassionate support to veterans and provides a list of resources available to them where help for PTSD can be found. This is a well-organized and well-written book on an important subject. Recommended for health professionals and students, lawyers, interested members of the public, and policymakers. -R. L. Jones, Pennsylvania State University, Hershey Medical Center
