This is virtually a new work. The author has kept pace with the changing concepts in psychiatry and profited by the special work of his younger colleagues. Yet he ignores dynamic psychiatry and dismisses it as "awful nonsense" and perpetuates a modified kraepelinian descriptive psychiatry resting on an organic point of view. However, the volume remains one of the best psychiatric textbooks published.
