Review by:
E. J.

This little book of 45 pages, reprinted independently from the Year Book of Education, is a masterpiece of concise presentation, and though Mrs. Isaacs covers in it an immense field she does so so skilfully as to produce no impression of condensation or omission.

An introductory chapter on various methods of study is followed by one called 'Recent Advances in the Study of Child Development'. Here she traces the various phases of development, taking separately the emotional and intellectual development during the first year. Then comes the social and emotional development after infancy followed by an account of the unconscious mental life. A short final chapter is entitled 'Some Educational Bearings'. By means of an unusually lucid presentation, and making a skilful use of the technical device of cross-headings, she has succeeded not only in grouping her material in an easily intelligible way but also of giving the reader a highly interesting and flowing account of childhood. The booklet, though written for teachers, could be very advantageously read by the medical profession and by all intelligent parents.
