This volume is based on the principle that the patient rather than the symptoms requires treatment. It is a study of personality, including an excellent historical survey of various methods of procedure in psychiatry now available. The cases presented for analysis and study are found to be well selected and exceedingly interesting. The division of psychiatry into excitement and depression, schizophrenic reactions, and paranoid, delirious and toxic reactions is an indication of the new broad lines which govern psychiatry today. This volume is sufficiently direct in its concept and in its presentation to warrant its use by every physician who wishes to orient himself in this field.
