Manual of Psychiatry: Edited by Aaron J. Rosanoff, M.D. (Fifth Edition, Revised and Enlarged, 1920. Chapman & Hall. Pp. 640. Price 22s.)

Review by:
W. H.B. Stoddart

The fact that this well known American Manual has reached its fifth edition in fifteen years is sufficient evidence that it serves its purpose as a text-book.

Before the war it was merely a translation of Rogues de Fursac's work, but Dr. Rosanoff has now taken over most of the American edition and modified it according to his own views.

We have always regarded this book as remarkably unequal and the present edition has not modified our opinion. For the most part Kraepelin's classification is adopted and the various forms of mental disorder are described, sometimes in full (Manic-Depressive psychoses, Dementia Praecox, General Paralysis) and sometimes much too briefly (Neurasthenia, Paranoia, Infection and Exhaustion psychoses). Uraemic delirium has a chapter all to itself while myxoedema is dismissed in less than three pages.
