This small volume is really a sequence to "Psychonevroses de Guerre" by Roussy and Lhermitte, in which the general principles of treatment were considered. In the meantime, Roussy, Boisseau and D'Œlsnitz, having had exceptional opportunities for the study and treatment of war neuroses, have accumulated a number of conceptions and convictions concerning these disorders. Their ideas are embraced in the present work. The authors very pertinently remark that the analytic study of therapeutic results, especially of the mode of disappearance of a nervous disorder, naturally helps one to understand the mechanism of inception and the evolution of such disorder.
As most French authors are fairly well agreed as to the ordinary types of neuroses, their nature and treatment, the authors of the present volume have devoted especial study to the type of trouble specially emphasized by Babinski and Froment, called by them "physiopathic" or of "reflex nature."
