A number of books have been written by authors in the West on Abnormal Psychology. These books, while presenting the principles of the subject, explain it mostly with the examples drawn from their own environment. Though psychology is based upon universal principles, its understanding requires assimilation of its principles with reference to the local environment. In this book an attempt has been made to present the principles of abnormal psychology in the context of Indian circumstances.
The aim of the present study is to provide the undergraduate and postgraduate students with an ideal textbook of Abnormal Psychology. Efforts have been made to cover the syllabi of almost all the Indian Universities. However, all unnecessary details have been scrupulously avoided so that the book may not become unnecessarily bulky.

At the end of each chapter, questions for exercise drawn from latest question papers of different universities have been given.
