Professor Lange, who recently died, leaves this edition of his brief textbook of psychiatry, which has been edited by Bostroem. It is a compendium which contains descriptive material of most of the usual psychiatric conditions in the orthodox kraepelinian fashion.

In fact, its sterile descriptiveness without any dynamic or modern ideas tends to make it much less valuable than available American textbooks.
