The fifth edition of this standard manual was reviewed in The Journal, Sept. 4, 1920. It was pointed out that its successive editions have been built on the nucleus of the author's translation of Rouge de Fursac's "Manual de psychiatrie," which appeared in 1905. The present edition still contains chapters on individual psychoses by de Fursac, but more of the material is by Rosanoff himself and his other collaborators, H. L. Hollingsworth, Mary C. Jarrett, C.
