The volume presents the twenty-two lectures given during 1943 in a postgraduate course on war psychiatry organized by Dr. Pacheco e Silva, professor of psychiatry in the University of São Paulo. Dr. Pacheco e Silva and fifteen of his colleagues have embodied a thorough study of the various applications of psychiatry to the problems of war; considering first the general scheme of examinations, they proceed to the various clinical pictures as met in a military setting, then to such problems as malingering, laws and regulations, and mental hygiene, individual and collective. The volume is substantial evidence of the foresight and progressive scholarship of our psychiatric colleagues in Brazil.
