A long-felt need for a single volume of up-to-date source material in psychopathology is filled with the publication of this collection of forty-five articles by leading psychologists and psychiatrists. All the papers have appeared within the past five years in various scientific journals not readily available to students, and they represent fairly the various schools of psychopathology. Although designed primarily as a source book for use in courses in abnormal psychology, the book deals not only with that particular field, but with a number of the related sciences. The contents cover mental diseases in childhood, psychoneuroses and psychosomatic medicine, the schizophrenic psychoses, and experimental psychopathology. The scope of the articles makes this a valuable reference work not only for psychologists but for psychiatrists, physicians, nurses, social scientists, welfare workers, and educators—all persons, in fact, who are concerned with any aspect of psychopathology. The non-professional who has a serious interest in this subject will also find this book a worth-while addition to his library.
