With publication of Intellectual Disability:
Understanding Its Development, Causes, Classification, Evaluation,
and Treatment, Dr James Harris has provided an inspired “blueprint”
that translates current scientific and clinical advances to individuals and patient populations with intellectual disability and has thereby charted a course for the future.
Harris is a leader in the field and has been editor (and architect)
of the Developmental Perspectives in Psychiatry series of books for Oxford University Press. Intellectual Disability might well be credited with moving the field forward in important ways while also laying the foundation for additional progress. The title alone is noteworthy.
