This book cannot be reviewed in the ordinary sense of the word; rather, it can only be announced. The author has been Superintendent of the Boston State Hospital for many years, during which he has attained experience and skill as a Mental Hospital Administrator and great stature within the psychiatric profession.

In this volume he has collated his vast experience into a veritable encyclopedia concerning almost every problem in hospital administration. The information is easily available, since it is divided into appropriate chapters and thoroughly indexed.

The book is of inestimable value for all psychiatrists and students of the field.
