Review by:
Joseph Sandler

This is, as usual, a goldmine of information, and the present volume is perhaps the best of those published to date. The sixteen chapters cover the usual range of psychological topics, and include abnormalities of behaviour, psychotherapy, counselling, and a new chapter on gerontology.

With the growth of psycho-analytic psychology as distinct from psycho-analytic psychopathology and therapy, the research psycho-analyst will find this book useful as a reference source to psychological material which can be integrated into a psycho-analytic mode of thought. It is a pity that most of the authors seem to equate progress in psychology with the increased application of psychometric methods. Theories as such are given scant attention in the discussion, but this is a consequence of the necessity for condensation.

It is to be hoped that in forthcoming editions psycho-analytic psychology will find a chapter of its own. Nevertheless this book is a valuable asset to research workers who want to scan and trace relevant new contributions with speed and ease.
