N2 - Reviews the book, 9/11: Mental Health in the Wake of Terrorist Attacks edited by Y. Neria, R. Gross, R. Marshall with E. Susser (Guest editor) (see record 2006-21181-000). This voluminous book may parallel, to an extent, the response by the mental health community to the 9/11 terrorist attacks: some parts of it are excellent, others not so, and there is a great amount of redundancy, self-congratulation, and political maneuvering. Perhaps because it contains dissociative symptoms as diagnostic criteria, the book has almost no references to acute stress disorder (ASD) as a post-traumatic DSM-IV diagnosis, a point made by Shalev. The ASD diagnosis has been criticized by one of the editors, but inclusion of this DSM-IV diagnosis would have been essential in a book with an aim to educate mental health professionals on human reactions to disaster and post-traumatic diagnoses.
