Summary "This book has been written for medical students and general practitioners. It makes no claim to be other than a carefully prepared text-book. The literature of neurology and psychiatry has been sifted by the authors, and such digest revised in the light of their own experience in practice and in teaching. They have attempted to present their facts clearly, directly, and with brevity, despite the difficulty of condensing two great subjects within the limits of a single volume. This is not the joint work of two writers, but each author--Dr. Church in Neurology, and Dr. Peterson in Psychiatry--has contributed to the making of a single volume what might have made a separate monograph; each is, therefore, solely responsible for the work in his own department. In placing the correlated sciences neurology and psychiatry under the same cover, the reader's convenience was considered"--Preface.
"The section on Nervous Diseases in this edition has been enlarged by about twenty pages, most of which are distributed in the form of interpolations throughout the text. A new chapter on Psychasthenia has been added, based on the recent formulation of this tolerably distinct symptom-group, to enable its differentiation from neurasthenia. The more recent views in regard to the motor area of the Rolandic region have necessitated the remodeling of the chapter pertaining to the related subjects, and new diagrams. A few new illustrations have been added, and one or two withdrawn. It has not been deemed wise to follow the somewhat radical, but still hypothetical, ideas that have gained a certain currency in relation to the subjects of aphasia and hysteria. In the section on Mental Diseases, the matter has been carefully revised throughout, and a new article on Psychotherapy has been added"--Book.
