 The authors

Psychopathology is the science and study of psychological and psychiatricsymptoms. Clinical psychopathology locates this study in the clinical contextin which psychiatrists make diagnostic assessments and deliver mentalhealth services. A clear understanding of clinical psychopathology lies at theheart of effective and appropriate delivery of such services.In 1967, Frank Fish produced a 128-page volume on psychopathology,entitled
Clinical Psychopathology: Signs and Symptoms in Psychiatry
(Fish,1967). Despite its brevity or more likely, because of its brevity,
 Fish’sClinical Psychopathology
soon became an essential text for medical students,psychiatric trainees and all healthcare workers involved in the delivery of mental health services. A revised edition, edited by Max Hamilton, appearedin 1974 (Hamilton, 1974) and was reprinted as a second edition in 1985(Hamilton, 1985).In recent years,
 Fish’s Clinical Psychopathology
has been out of print andessentially impossible to locate. The purpose of this third edition is tointroduce this classic text to a new generation of psychiatrists and trainees,
and to reacquaint existing afcionados with the elegant insights and enduring
values of Fish’s original work.Revising
 Fish’s Clinical Psychopathology
has been both a humbling andexciting experience. While striving at all times to retain the spirit of Fish’soriginal work, we have revised the language in various areas so as totake account of changes in linguistic conventions. We have also updatedreferences and included new material relating to personality disorder,cognitive distortion, defence mechanisms, memory and unusual psychiatricsyndromes.Notwithstanding these revisions, we trust that this text remains true tothe spirit of Fish’s original
Clinical Psychopathology
, the volume that shapedthe clinical education and practice of a generation of psychiatrists. Wehope that this edition proves similarly useful to contemporary readers. If it succeeds, all credit lies with the original insights of Frank Fish; if it doesnot, the fault lies with us.
