The whole field of abnormal psychology is undergoing modification, influenced by the introduction of Freud's theories and the psychanalytic method of study. This new edition of Coriat has been enlarged by some general outlines of Freudian principles. "For reasons of space" and "because such material does not really lend itself to popular presentation" the author does not go into the subject fully. He is evidently troubled by qualms of which some exponents of the newer psychology have not complained. The theory of dreams is explained in simple language, and there is a new chapter on the prevention of the neuroses and a reprinted article on colored hearing. The book has advanced parallel to recent studies in abnormal psychology and is a worthy publication for those especially interested in the subject.
