This is an enlarged edition of the only authentic textbook on the place of the physical therapy in psychiatry. A large section on psychosurgery is included in the edition as well as a chapter on theoretical considerations. The extensive research into sources of data, which the authors have critically integrated with their personal experiences, is indicated by the 52 pages of bibliography. The book is well written and the subject matter demarcated to enable easy reference to various aspects of the subject. For psychiatrists employing physical therapy, this work should be a great help.
