Review by:
Norman Reider

The twenty-two papers of the fourth volume of this annual publication may conveniently be divided into four groups. Historical and biographic items concerning Freud and Brill are the topics of the first four papers. Federn's paper on Freud's first presentation of the 'Rattenmann' at meetings of the Vienna Psychoanalytic Society in 1907 contains primarily the technical and theoretical remarks by Freud and comments by members of the Society who took part in the discussion, a briefly but most interestingly recorded event. Wittel's study of Freud's relation to Josef Popper-Lynkeus, and Brill's translation of Popper-Lynkeus's Dreaming Like Waking, from an important contribution to the history of psychoanalysis.

Of the next five papers, chiefly of theoretical interest, Jones's The Genesis of the Superego and Jeanne Lampl-de Groot's On the Development of the Ego and Superego are particularly fine, the latter especially worthy of detailed study. Kate Friedlander's On the Modification of Instincts is an almost too condensed and systematic summary, albeit excellent for didactic purposes. The reason for the inclusion of Ilse Forest's essay on The Libido Concept is not clear.

The next four papers may be considered clinical in nature although only G. Bose's paper on the 'All or None' Attitude in Sex gives detailed clinical case histories.
