The author has written an elementary book concerned with general psychic mechanisms and their deviations from normal. He has done fairly adequately in his attempt to be fair to most of the important schools in psychiatry. There is a small amount of illustrated case material. Three hundred pages is hardly sufficient for an adequate summary of the field of psychopathology, so that this work serves simply as an appetizer to the beginning student in the field. It is recommended highly for this purpose.
