Review by:
Charles Davison

This, like the preceding volumes, is a review of important articles in the basic sciences, neurology, neurosurgery, psychosurgery and psychiatry that appeared in 1948. Only one third of the volume is devoted to psychiatry. The chapter on Psychoanalysis, edited by Dr. R. L. Frank and a number of associates, does not receive much space, covering thirteen out of a total of five hundred ninety-two pages. The authors abstracted the 1948 panel discussions of the American Psychoanalytic Association, reviews of books such as Fundamentals of Psychoanalysis by Alexander, Emotional Security by Sapirstein, Emotional Maturity by Saul, and a number of articles which were published in various psychoanalytic journals. Unfortunately, Nunberg's article on Circumcision and Problems of Bisexuality, one of the outstanding contributions, in the reviewer's opinion, was not discussed. Let us hope that in the future, this annual review will give more space to the subject of psychoanalysis.
