This eighth volume of Bumke's Handbuch deals with the etiology and pathogenesis of dementia paralytica and the nonparalytic psychoses, by A. Hauptmann; the syphilitic psychoses and the clinical aspects of dementia paralytica by Bostroem, and the treatment for the syphilitic psychoses by Plaut and Kihn. F. Stern presents the arteriosclerotic psychoses, Runge the mental disorders of the female and male climacteric and involution period, and the psychoses of senility (including also Alzheimer's and Pick's disease). The epileptic reactions and epileptic diseases by Gruhle close the volume. The presentation and bibliography are in keeping with the standards of this comprehensive survey of the field, as may well be expected of the authors long known as leading investigators of these fields.
