Mother and Son: By C. Gasquoigne Hartley, author of The Truth about Woman, Motherhood, etc. (Nash & Grayson, London, 1923. Pp. 294. Price 7 s. 6 d.)

Review by:
E. J.

This volume, addressed to a purely popular audience, will no doubt be useful in introducing to a family class some of the newer ideas of modern clinical psychology. The book is very cautiously written, and the feat is achieved of writing 300 pages on the relations between mother and son without mentioning the word incest. Much of this caution we understand to have been imposed on the author by the publisher. The same excuse can hardly be adduced for the lack of critical capacity evident in many parts of the book. One example will suffice. The reader is advised to study psycho-analysis by perusing a volume by Freud and one by Tridon, as though they were similar authorities on the subject.
