The Trauma of War: Stress and Recovery of Vietnam Veterans is a unique psychiatric source book. This volume provides a scientific account of the psychological ravages of the war in Vietnam on the men and women who served there, but throughout the book reverberates the troubled voices of these veterans-and the sensitive voices of the mental health professionals who have been directly affected by their work with these veterans.

The chief emphasis on The Trauma of War: Stress and Recovery of Vietnam Veterans involves careful evaluation of troubled veterans and sensitive but effective modes of treatment. The special readjustment needs of black, Hispanic, and women veterans are also addressed. Finally, application of this clinical material to the area of posttraumatic stress disorder research reflect the significant advances that have been made in the field since posttraumatic stress disorder was first recognized as a diagnostic entity. These advancements in research constitute a fitting legacy to the thousands of Vietnam veterans who have continued to suffer from the trauma of war.
