As the jacket indicates, this is not a psychiatric textbook and, as the title indicates, it consists of a concise account of normal and abnormal psychology for junior students. It describes the general principles of psychology, the causation of mental abnormality and the factors concerned therein. Short accounts of the principal schools of thought are included, and reference is made to the mental factor in physical disease and to the directions in which psychology is increasingly being applied. The book fills its purpose well. There is an excellent glossary, suggestions for further reading, and an adequate index.
