There have been many histories of neurology and psychiatry but few with the scope of this volume. Indeed, its more than six hundred pages and its somewhat involved approach to the subject make it primarily a work of reference for those especially interested in the field rather than for the general reader. Obviously, of greatest importance is the evaluation of the freudian technic and the author's plea for tolerance in relationship to new discoveries in this field. The volume is supplemented by a brief consideration of organic mental diseases by Dr. George W. Henry.
