"In preparing the present edition of this "Manual of Psychiatry", it has been the special aim of the editor to make it a working manual. While the more important current theoretical conceptions of the various schools of psychiatry have been given a place in it, the main endeavor has been to present a description of the material of the psychiatric clinic, and methods of dealing with it--that is to say, technique of diagnosis, prevention, and treatment. Among the additions are to be mentioned chapters or sections dealing with the following subjects: disturbances of nutrition in relation to mental disorders; psychoses associated with lethargic encephalitis; psychoses associated with pellagra; residuals of cerebrospinal meningitis; theory of personality; rest and diet in the treatment of mental disorders; parole system; prevention by eugenic measures; mental disorders of childhood and mental hygiene of childhood; military psychiatry; a state mental hygiene program; group tests of intelligence; educational achievement tests; guide to study of personality; and tables of intelligence quotient values. Also a number of illustrations have been added. The rest of the book has been extensively rewritten and enlarged. A glossary of technical terms has been embodied in the index. This "Manual" is divided into five parts: Part I deals with general psychiatry, comprising etiology and symptomatology. Part II deals with special psychiatry, i.e., with the various clinical entities individually. Part III deals with the practice of psychiatry, comprising methods of investigation, treatment, prevention, and medico-legal problems. Part IV is devoted to technique of special diagnostic procedures. Part V consists of appendices giving the classification of mental disorders officially adopted by the American Psychiatric Association, a number of tables, a glossary, and an index"--Introduction.
