Medicine in a Changing Society: The New York Academy of Medicine Lectures to the Laity. No. XVIII. Edited by Iago Galdston. (New York: International Universities Press, 1956. Pp. 166. $3.)

Review by:
E. Stengel

This is another series of lectures for the sophisticated layman. They admirably convey the profound changes which medicine has undergone during the last few decades as the result of revolutionary developments in natural and social science. Franz Alexander writes in a philosophical vein about the biological significance of the antithesis of adventure and security which pervades our society. John Rose writes about changes in family life and their influence on mental health. W. Malamud discusses the effects of brain changes on the personality. Horsley Gantt evaluates Pavlov's contribution to the study of behaviour. Lastly, Iago Galdston, in a fascinating historical essay entitled 'Salerno and the Atom', traces the development of comprehensive medicine back to the famous school of Salerno.
