Review by:
E. J.

This must be the first work on psycho-analysis written by an Indian, and we note with interest that it reveals a considerable knowledge of the subject. The author tells us that he has been practising psycho-analysis since 1909, and although he has no access to writings in the German language, and evidently only to a certain number of those in English, he gives evidence of considerable personal experience as well as of careful thought.

In the first chapter or two the author explains his position as a pan-psychic determinist, a doctrine he applies thoroughly. He has chosen repression as the title of his book and as the main theme in it because in his opinion 'Freud's concept of repression is perhaps the most important contribution to psychopathology'. He then expounds the subject of repression, of conflict, and of allied themes familiar to the readers of this JOURNAL. In it he lays especial, and unwonted stress on the tendency to polarity in the human mind. The book is extensively illustrated by diagrams, which will doubtless be useful to the beginner.
