This is Volume 7 of this well-known annual and is almost exclusively devoted to the problems of child analysis. The groups of topics are as follows: Problems of Early Development, 3 papers; Psychosexual Development, 3 papers; Development of the Ego and Some of Its Functions, 4 papers; Ego Pathology, 6 papers; Clinical Problems, 3 papers, and Applied Psychoanalysis, 3 papers.

All of these articles are interesting and represent advances in psychoanalytical thought and practice. The papers are original, and the survey of childhood psychiatry should be useful and of value to all of those to whom the subject is of initial interest.
