The aim of this book is to weave together the diverse threads of epidemiological
research in schizophrenia into a single volume that captures the new and exciting
themes that have been emerging over recent years. Diverse topics are juxtaposed to
expose synergy and to reveal new avenues of work, while the power of the epidemiological
method runs throughout the book. The sections correspond to
different subdisciplines within epidemiology: social, genetic and developmental
epidemiology, with additional sections for special and emerging issues relevant to
the epidemiological study of schizophrenia. Despite the multiple authorship, we
have tried to maintain a unified approach to epidemiological thinking throughout
the book. Authors were asked to concentrate on findings that have been established
through robust epidemiological investigation.
The book provides an overview of the current state of epidemiological knowledge
and research in schizophrenia and is intended as a reference for those involved
in research about schizophrenia or in clinical work with individuals who suffer
from schizophrenia. We have placed much emphasis on findings that may elucidate
the causes of this complex illness. No previous training in epidemiology is assumed
and a glossary of epidemiological terms is included at the back of the book. The
editors are based in the UK, the USA and the Netherlands and are all engaged in
schizophrenia. We are very fortunate in having gathered together a talented and
internationally respected group of contributors and we thank them for their enthusiastic
