The book, edited by physiologist Jacobson with ten contributors drawn from various psychologic and psychiatric disciplines, attempts to delineate the role of tension in psychiatric and organic disease. It is an interesting discussion which serves to remind practicing physicians of inapparent factors that may be operative in contributing to the presentation of anxious patients. Such details may become obscured in the somewhat pragmatic environment of office or hospital.
