Review by:
D. B.

This book on Psycho-Analysis and the War Neuroses is a symposium to which Freud has written an introduction.

Three of the writers, Abraham, Ferenczi and Jones, deal chiefly with the psycho-analytic theory of the war neuroses, while Simmel takes up the question of treatment and essentially a treatment calling for quick results, which although not psycho-analytic is a useful contribution to this part of the subject.

The first and perhaps most important fact to be noticed in the three theoretical papers including Freud's introduction is that all four writers have arrived at the same fundamental factor operative in the causation of the war neuroses—namely, injury to the person's narcissism. And further, they have all approached the solution from somewhat different angles, and also without any exchange of thoughts on the subject. Each contribution is the individual and independent view of the writer. Communication between the writers was excluded on account of the war conditions prevailing at the time. Abraham was in East Prussia, Ferenczi in Budapest, Freud in Vienna, and Jones in England.
