Hector Warnes’ comment on the review of the first edition of Julio Moizeszowicz’s Psychodynamic Psychopharmacology

Julio Moizeszowicz’s influential book was first published in 1982 by PAIDOS in Buenos Aires (Argentina) and Barcelona (Spain) with the title of Psychopharmacology Psychodynamics: Neurochemical, Neuropsychiatric and Psychological Aspects. During the years from 1982 to 2000, the book was updated by the author in 1988 in a second edition, in 1994 in a third, and in 1998 in a fourth edition.  In the year 2000, the fourth edition was reprinted to meet demands. By the updates in the different editions the size of the book grew considerably from 288 pages to 1248 pages.

In the early years of the 21st century, Psychopharmacology Psychodynamics was converted into a multi-authored text, edited by Julio Moizeszowicz that was published in 2002  by Taller Gráfico IBS (print Oscar Sanchez), in Buenos Aires with  14 chapters from which one, on Geriatric Psychopharmacology  was written by Moizeszowicz himself. Subsequently, in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008, updates to the book, edited by Moizeszowicz, were published, with the title Psychopharmacology Psychodynamics IV. Each update volume is about 200 pages and includes 10 to 14 chapter written by different authors including Moizeszowicz. These updated volumes were published under the auspices of Hoffman-LaRoche Pharmaceuticals in Buenos Aires.
