The book devotes little space to pathology, but enters fully into the clinical features of mental deficiency, beginning with an interesting historical summary of the treatment of defective children. The authors lay greatest stress on the treatment, mental, moral, and especially industrial; etiology, classification, and prognosis are treated at length. The book can be commended to the physician as a broad, sympathetic and thorough discussion of this important subject.
