Social Control of The Feebleminded: A Study of Social Programs and Attitudes in Relation to the Problems of Mental Deficiency. By Stanley P. Davies, Ph.D. New York: The National Committee for Mental Hygiene, 1923. Pp. 222.

The best book on the subject of the feebleminded that the reviewer has seen in many a day. To be sure it contains no clinical descriptions of the various types of defect, nor in fact are they even mentioned. The subject of feeblemindedness is considered solely from the social standpoint and the only differentiation that is made is that based upon mental age and the general social adaptability expressed in the broad terms of good and bad.

After stating in chapter I the problems with which the book undertakes to deal, chapter II gives a very excellent historical survey of the early treatment and the period of physiological education.
