Abstract

Reviews the book, Emotions and memory by David Rapaport (1942). This book is a review and critical digest. It presents and evaluates conclusions from experimental findings, clinical observations, and theoretical views from the fields of psychology, psychiatry, and psychoanalysis relevant to the topic announced in the title. The author thumps the tub for no particular theoretical view or systematic bias but presents a clear and sympathetic treatment of a vast amount of literature. Bibliography is placed at the end of each chapter and shows a heavy concentration of foreign titles which gives the book an added value in bringing to the attention of the American investigator a great deal of little-known material. The book is well written in an interesting and clear style. The summaries, discussions, and conclusions at the end of each chapter serve to clarify and bring out the crucial issues involved.
