Review by:
William D. Horton

The Group for the Advancement of Psychiatry, as stated in this book, is 'organized in the form of a number of working committees which direct their efforts toward the study of various aspects of psychiatry and toward the application of this knowledge to the fields of mental health and human relations'. This volume consists of eight reports and four symposia published during the period from June 1, 1956 to May 31, 1959. They are arranged according to date of publication rather than content, and the range of subject matter is wide.

The reports are well-organized and informative. Each one covers a definite area of study, as for instance, The Diagnostic Process in Child Psychiatry as formulated by the Committee on Child Psychiatry. The symposia are less formal and contain the remarks of the various participants, with the result that they tend to be more interesting and stimulating.

In general, the subject matter impresses one with the tremendous scope of interest of modern psychiatry. The number of unsolved problems is even more noteworthy. Appropriately enough, two of the reports deal with methods of research. By its very nature, this collection is a valuable reference volume rather than a book for general reading.
