This volume represents a collection of the studies carried on by Professor Thomas and his associates in various portions of the United States. Here are considerations of maladjustments to our modern civilization, and of programs of research in a field which is just beginning to open for the investigator. Here is a guide to the various clinics that are being established in the United States, and to the whole question of parent and teacher in relationship to child behavior. The work is not a simple guide for the average mother but a source book for the experienced worker in this field. For such people, the experience of a leader such as Professor Thomas is invaluable.
