Those with an interest in medical history will be glad to become acquainted with Dr. Philippe Pinel through this small monograph. Pinel was a distinguished pioneer in the field of mental disease and had much to do with reforming the care of the mentally ill in France during the early part of the nineteenth century. His story is pleasantly told here, and his work is properly fitted into place by considering what psychiatry was before his time, how he influenced and reformed it and what, essentially, were his philosophy and ideals.

This reprint gives an attractive idea of how medical history is respected by our colleagues in South America.
