Practical Clinical Psychiatry: By Edward A. Strecker, Franklin G. Ebaugh and Leo Kanner. Fifth Edition. Philadelphia: The Blakiston Company, 1940. 728 pp.

Review by:
R. G.

That this text has had five editions printed in fifteen years is sufficient proof of its popularity.

The present edition has been expanded to include, among other additions, a chapter by Leo Kanner, M.D., on Psychopathological Problems of Childhood from the child guidance point of view, a description of the Rorschach test as a contributory method of examination, and a note on Surgical Procedures in the Treatment of Psychoses. In the chapter on Manic Depressive Psychoses, shock therapy and prolonged narcosis are described in the section on therapy.

In all sections, the clinical material is well presented. The sequence followed is traditional, beginning with the organic and ending with the psychoneurotic reaction types. This serves to emphasize the unpsychological character of the text as a whole.

It is an open secret where psychobiology picked up its exclusive 'genetic-dynamic' orientation. The debt to psychoanalysis is omnipresent and liberally unacknowledged in accordance with the custom of the '… psychotherapeutists who warm their pot of soup at our fire without indeed being very grateful for our hospitality' (Freud).
