an attack of scarlet fever at three years of age," for no family history and no personal history is negative but always packed full of positive factors, strong environmental factors. Children are not brought up in vacuo but in the complicated environment of a home, able to cope with varying success with the claims and demands of love to father and mother, brothers and sisters. Leave these out and you have "poor visual memory," include them and you have the Oedipus situation. Having said this we may add that there is no reason to dispute that the boy made good progress at a trade school, but will the author tell us why progress was made there—and elsewhere? He is now twenty-six, is he married, in love? Has he ceased to be morose and solitary? If the N.S.S.N.A.C. is as interested in his exogamous marriage as in his trade education it will earn the gratitude of his relations and modern psychologists.
ADOLF MEYER: Objective Psychology or Psychobiology with Subordination of the Medically Useless Contrast of Mental and Physical...the activity of the total organism.... PHILIP COOMBS KNAPP: The Treatment of Cases of Mental Disorder in General Hospitals. The usual plea, strongly urged (and silently resisted). C. MACFIE CAMPBELL: On the Mechanism of Convulsive Phenomena and Allied Symptoms. Convulsive Phenomena placed in a series: organic (uraemia, etc.) at one end and symbolic at the other. A short survey. CHARLES I. LAMBERT: The Clinical and Anatomical Features in Alzheimer's Disease and Related Conditions. A valuable review with cases. C. MACFIE CAMPBELL: A Case of Childhood Conflicts with Prominent Reference to the Urinary System; with some General Considerations on Urinary Symptoms in the Psychoneuroses and Psychoses. A girl's case observed from age of 7-11. Details are given and the conclusion drawn that there is a close connection between urinary symptoms and the sexual instinct. L. PIERCE CLARK: Some Therapeutic Considerations of Periodic Mental Depressions. An "intensive analysis" of one case showed that the patient had "a very close attachment to the home tie.”—No reference to oral fixation or alteration of appetite. No analysis of her object relationships. Six case histories ("foreconsciously analysed") in about 2500 words. C. MACFIE CAMPBELL: On the Mechanism of Some Cases of Manic-Depressive Excitement. The author gives many details of the personal history and then asks the pertinent question Why did these patients break out with this particular disorder and no other? The determining factors are grouped according as they influence internal or external frustration--a welcome feature in a book on psychiatry, but Abraham's 1912 paper is sharply criticised, a paper however which thirteen years of subsequent work have largely supported. MAURICE C. ASHLEY: Synopsis of the History of a Case in which the Court Rushes in where Physicians Fear to Tread. L. PIERCE CLARK: A Psychologic Study of Stealing in Juvenile Delinquency. A detailed study. "Associated with and following the foregoing analysis on the stealing and lying impulses, the youth was given ethical talks covering every phase of his previous misconducts and their consequences. Gradually an entire change in attitude and character took place." This case-history is the best in the book; it is a pity the author does not tell us more of this popular technique, which Freudians find themselves unable to follow and non-Freudians unable to explain. The volume ends with two papers by SMITH ELY JELLIFFE: A Nemopsychiatric Pilgrimage which confines itself to the Continent of Europe and Paleopsychology, A Tentative Sketch of the Origin and Evolution of Symbolic Functions which surveys the widest 'Paleopsychological Horizons.'
