American physicians will find this translation of Kraepelin's clinical lectures a very instructive work on the types and the diagnosis of mental disease. As the editor says, they are thoroughly practical and their value is enhanced by the fact that there is no psychiatric teacher at the present day whose ideas figure more largely in the literature than those of Professor Kraepelin. It will be found of value, both to the alienist and to the general practitioner, on whose judgment most frequently depends the earliest recognition and treatment of insanity when it occurs. Dr. Johnstone has appended to the lectures a classification of mental disorders in accordance with Kraepelin's latest views. The translation appears to be excellent and the avoidance of new technical terms so far as possible is a praiseworthy feature.
