Review by:
D. F.

The editors have set themselves the task of filling "the need of a source book that would bring together in one volume selections from the widely scattered literature of mental hygiene and interpret the various aspects of the subject and the application of its principles". The collection, another indication of the eclecticism that seems endemic at present in the field of psychological textbooks—doubtless on the principle of Wer Vieles bringt, wird manchem etwas bringen; und Jeder geht zufrieden aus dem Haus—is designed to meet the multifarious needs of social workers, students, instructiors and librarians. It is practically impossible to review a volume of so many topics and such a variety of points of view. A list of the contents may serve as a guide to the reader:
