Research and Innovation on the Road to Modern Child Psychiatry. Volume 2:
Classic Papers by Professor Sir Michael Rutter

Professor Sir Michael Rutter has been, without question, the most influential and renowned child and adolescent psychiatrist of his era, both nationally and internationally. His innovative thinking and research practice has been at the forefront of research into both biological and psychosocial factors influencing child mental health and has established a developmental approach to integrating these different variables within child psychopathology. Michael Rutter's work has also been marked by its collaborative quality with disciplines other than medicine. A remarkable number of his ideas and findings over the years have stood the test of time.
This collection of some of Michael Rutter's most influential and important publications has been made with his collaboration. It includes a number of widely quoted papers from early in his career that are not otherwise easy to access, and covers papers representing the whole range of his research activities from psychiatric classification, psychosocial influences and genetic mechanisms through to the myth of adolescent turmoil. The collection contains a complete bibliography of Michael Rutter's publications to date. The book provides a valuable and convenient collection representing an immensely influential body of work.
This book will be of interest to child and adolescent psychiatrists, academic psychologists, developmental psychologists, social workers, and workers in specialist education, academic nursing, adult psychiatry, neurological medical specialities and other professional groups involved in child and adolescent mental health.
