This article reviews the book: “The International Handbook of Suicide and Attempted Suicide,” edited by K Hawton & K van Heeringen, said by the reviewer to be the best of a number of recent books explicating the complexity of the scientific knowledge in the field of suicidology. Praising it for its truly international nature (755 pages spanning 69 contributors from 23 nations), the reviewer calls the book “a landmark for the millennium on suicidology across the globe, for the novice to the master in the field.”
