This second edition of Dr. Kanner's comprehensive textbook, with prefaces by Drs. John C. Whitehorn, Adolf Meyer and Edwards A. Park, is extensively rewritten. In its present form the book reflects the considerable advances that have been made in the integration of psychiatric thinking and pediatric perspective. The author, as associate professor of both pediatrics and psychiatry at the Johns Hopkins University, has been close to and has played his own important part in bringing about this integration. One is impressed with the evidence of broadening and deepening of the author's approach to the problems of childhood health and illness since the first edition of this work was published. The historical review of child psychiatry with which the book opens offers the student a first orientation that will enable him to relate his work in child psychiatry to the several disciplines involved in a modern approach to problems of childhood.
