Abstract

Provides an overview of the major contributions of 11 recent scholarly books on attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) that provide a wealth of consolidated information to interested readers, and a comment on what their overall foci may indicate as a snapshot of current activity in the field. Recent books serve to provide (a) broad overviews of a range of issues related to ADHD, along with in-depth coverage of (b) the particular problem of comorbidity in ADHD, (c) ADHD in adults, and (a) pharmacological and genetic theory and data. Numerous other specialized issues are addressed in particular chapters in various volumes. In all, these volumes meet a need to consolidate the vast literature on ADHD. They reflect the strong interest in the field in treatment approaches and in such endogenous factors as neurobiological, genetic, and pharmacological advances, along with the relatively weaker interest in exogenous factors and developmental contexts of ADHD expression.
