AFFECTIVE DISORDERS: PSYCHOANALYTIC CONTRIBUTIONS TO THEIR STUDY, edited by Phyllis Greenacre. New York: International Universities Press, 1953, 212 pp., $3.00.

A compilation of five papers representing part of panel discussions on affective disorders held at meetings of the American Psychoanalytic Association in 1950 and 1951. Four of the articles, by E. Bibring, E. Jacobson, E. Zetzel and G. Gero, are on depression, while the fifth, by M. Katan, is on mania. A foreword by Greenacre is a succinct summary of recent theoretical considerations concerning depression, including suggestions about the early developmental aspects of the ego in relation to this clinical syndrome. The articles themselves summarize much of the previous work in the field of depression, and also suggest further areas for research.
