Manual of Psychiatry.

Manual of Psychiatry. This is manual is one of the best of its size; it gives much and leaves out little. The present edition excels the preceding ones in that it is brought up to date and because of several added features. Subjects having only an indirect connection with mental diseases have received due consideration. Because psychotic manifestations are frequently produced by brain abscess, central neuritis, cerebral arteriosclerosis, these brain diseases are discussed from the psychiatrist's point of view. We are agreeably surprised to find a chapter not often seen even in large books on psychiatry, namely, the one on the prevention of insanity and the hygiene of the mind. Recognizing the great value of the Wassermann reaction in the diagnosis of the psychic disorders having syphilis as their basis, the editor and translator has added a splendid description of the Wassermann test as modified by Noguchi. We are grateful to the author http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association

Abstract

This is manual is one of the best of its size; it gives much and leaves out little. The present edition excels the preceding ones in that it is brought up to date and because of several added features.

Because psychotic manifestations are frequently produced by brain abscess, central neuritis, cerebral arteriosclerosis, these brain diseases are discussed from the psychiatrist's point of view. We are agreeably surprised to find a chapter not often seen even in large books on psychiatry, namely, the one on the prevention of insanity and the hygiene of the mind.
