Here a number of prominent British writers discuss child psychiatry under the special headings of physical illness, mental illness, sociologic aspects and special syndromes. The latter concern chiefly enuresis, stammering, sleep disorders, tics and sexual difficulties. A book of this type indicates how far we have advanced in our study of the child since the leaders of medical and social science began to give these problems special attention. It is interesting to know that the Commonwealth Fund of America aided in setting up a demonstration clinic in London and was really responsible for introducing the whole field of child guidance into Great Britain. The competent articles here presented are an indication of the great advancement that has been made.
