Very few books in the field of health sciences are ever reissued, particularly after being out of print for several years. Usually the material has become dated or new books have come along to take their place. This book is an exception. Not only is the text still current but more significantly, it has become a standard—a benchmark—in the fields of suicidology and crisis intervention.
The Prediction of Suicide represents one of the first concerted efforts in the United States to define and evaluate the once-bewildering storehouse of information about the assessment, classification and causes of suicidal behavior.
All these years after it was published, this book is still one of the most frequently cited references in the world’s literature on these subjects.
