In this edition the authors have practically rewritten the work in order to avail themselves of modern points of view in psychology and psychopathology. The volume begins with a general consideration of psychology and mental mechanism, then considers the causes and classifications of mental disorders, and proceeds to a study of special mental disorders, concluding with a section on mental deficiency and miscellaneous chapters covering laboratory work, the relationship of insanity with law, and the general treatment of the insane. It is planned definitely to the needs of British medical practice.
