Season of Birth: A Study of Schizophrenia and Other Mental Disorders discusses the correlation between season of birth and mental disorders. The book provides reviews of studies relevant to understanding how the season of birth relates to various mental disorders.
The first five chapters cover pregnancy and birth related issues. These chapters cover vital statistics, obstetrics, and neonatal and congenital abnormalities and disorders. The next two chapters deal with intelligence and mental disorders, respectively. Chapters 8 to 12 discuss the studies done on Swedish and South African demographics. Chapter 13 talks about the congenital malformations outside the central nervous system, while Chapter 14 deals with neoplastic diseases. The fifteenth chapter covers the other pathological conditions, and the last chapter discusses the normal somatic characteristics.
The text will be of great use to researchers and practitioners of psychology and psychiatry. Readers who are concerned with various mental disorders will also find the book informative.
