Many of the chapters of this book have appeared in other publications, some quite outside the field of medicine, like the Menorah Journal. The author's interests extend from the neuropsychiatric problems peculiar to the Jewish people to the eternal conflict between the individual and society. There is a striking chapter on Sigmund Freud, with the conclusion that psychoanalysis will be remembered longest for the insight into normal and abnormal behavior which it has vouchsafed. A chapter entitled "A Brief History of Psychiatry" indicates a belief in a lessened incidence of hysteria and the opinion that the neuroses now develop on a higher psychic level than formerly because of changes in social and cultural conditions.
