In this edition there are additional data on nursing treatment. A psychiatric nurse collaborated with the senior author in the presentation of the latter material. The book is primarily written for the student nurse and as such fills a great need satisfactorily. There are thirty-three chapters, all dealing with some phase of normal and abnormal behavior. Some of the chapters are written too briefly, even though the book is written for nurses. There is a short but good history of psychiatry and of psychiatric nursing. The book is recommended for student nurses and graduate nurses interested in psychiatry.
