The Society of Biological Psychiatry has achieved an important position in the total field, as it represents a special frame of reference to the problems of mental illness. Without pretending that this position enables man to find all the answers, but maintaining that the biology of man is an essential area of study for mental illness, the Society has established a sound scientific position. The present volume includes 27 papers on neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, electroencephalography, drug and somatic therapy, and psychopharmacologic research. Most of these are excellent. The essayists are distinguished investigators; the papers are all worth reading; and the book is highly recommended.
