This important volume contains papers presented at a seminar commemorating the 50th anniversary of Timberlawn Psychiatric Center, in Dallas, at which distinguished psychiatrists Francis Braceland, Francis Gerty, Henry Brosin, Dana Farnsworth, Herbert Modlin, and Lawrence Kolb presented two papers apiece. Every essay is specially valuable because it contains the up-to-date personal views of its author. I might select each chapter and elaborate upon its worth, beginning with Braceland's concisely comprehensive "Psychiatry: Past, Present, and Future," and ending with Modlin's delightfully imaginative and equally instructive "The Psychiatrist at Sea." I recommend this timely work highly.
