This highly successful, now standard, textbook of abnormal psychology has reached this edition with little fundamental revision. The book is not truly a textbook of abnormal psychology, for it contains much of basic neurology and physiology. It attempts an encyclopedic, unbiased attitude toward every field and endeavor which can be considered significant to the understanding of abnormal psychology. As a result, it has a certain attractiveness for the academic teacher and lacks the emphasis on living human beings with problems of adjustment that the serious student of abnormal psychology needs. It has an extensive glossary, detailed author and subject indexes and 12,000 bibliographic references.
