Review by:
E. J.

This well-known book has now reached its eighth edition in the original, the only English translation being from the fourth. It is generally recognised to be a standard work, one of the very best books that have ever been written on the subject of child psychology.

In the new edition we note that much more space has been devoted to psycho-analytical doctrines than in the earlier ones. The author, though long interested in psycho-analysis, has generally adopted a noncommittal attitude towards it. In the course of time this has gradually become more and more favourable. Throughout the book—and of how many other psychological text-books could this be said?—are scattered references to psycho-analytical work, which is taken extensively into account in regard to such topics as memory, conflict, sublimation, and so on.
