There are three parte, comprising a total of thirty-five papers. Among them such well-known contributions appear as "Indications for Child Analysis," "The Contributions of Psychoanalysis to Genetic Psychology," "The Role of Bodily Illness in the Mental Life of Children."

PSYCHOSOMATIC SPECIFICITY, VOLUME I: EXPERIMENT, STUDY, AND RESULTS. Edited by Franz Alexander, Thomas M. French, and George H. Pollock. Chicago & London: University of Chicago Press, 1968, 263 pp., $7.50.

This interdisciplinary research project is built on a "Nuclear operating principle [which] involved testing our ability to arrive at a somatic diagnosis from a formulation based on the psychogenetic and psychodynamic construction of the personality structure of the patient and of the relationship of the onset and exacerbating periods of the disease to this personality structure." Seven diseases were studied by the editors and seven collaborators. These were bronchial asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, essential hypertension, neurodermatitis, thyrotoxicosis, and duodenal peptic ulcer. At the beginning each of the personality profiles associated with these conditions is summarized, but it is also stated that these were only approximate formulations and that they have been improved and revised. Such corrected formulations, together with theoretical discussions of a more comprehensive nature, will appear in a forthcoming second volume.
