It is evidence of the importance of the new field of health psychology that it warrants this volume in the prestigious series of Oxford Handbooks. Presenting the state of research, the 35 chapters are divided into five sections; foundations, core concepts, core issues, health behaviors and change, and population and sociocultural issues. The focus on methodology and practice of the initial two sections will be particularly useful to beginning practitioners and graduate students. Editor Howard S. Friedman (psychology, U. of California, Riverside) has contributed a chapter on personality, disease, and self-healing and the concluding chapter describing future trends in addition to co-authoring the chapter on the field's intellectual roots with Nancy E. Adler (U. of California, San Francisco). As is typical for the series, the material is clearly and thoughtfully presented, with an abstract, list of keywords, and bibliography in each chapter, with the text presented in outline form, clearly dividing a substantial body of information into accessible parts.
