This volume examines the wide-ranging psychiatric and neurologic consequences of war affecting every level of human organization from the nation state to the molecular.
The volume present these consequences from a multitude of perspectives and modes of inquiry; from the intrapsychic to the empirical. Contributions address address the nature of modern warfare and social interventions to present it in topics such as "The Mind of the Jihadist" and "Preventing Mass Violence." Intervention and prevention are considered for the effects of war on the individual.
While substantial strides have been made in characterization of the specific neurologic and psychiatric consequences of war, such as traumatic brain injury (TBI) and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), significant gaps remain in the understanding of how to treat or prevent these outcomes. Contributors to this volume discuss cutting-edge research, treatment approaches and public policy issues.
