A follow-up study of war neuroses by Norman Q Brill( Book )

2 editions published in 1956 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study is the result of cooperative efforts between governmental agencies and also represents a partnership of government and civilian medicine. It would be difficult to overemphasize the pertinency of the subject matter to our national welfare. The experiences of two world wars and their aftermaths demand imaginative and exhaustive investigations of causative, therapeutic and rehabilitative factors in psychiatric illnesses. The pension and compensation functions of the Veterans Administration give factual and startling evidence of these needs. Our defense efforts including the present and future requirements of the armed services, as well as the ever-present spectre of total mobilization in an emergency, all underline the necessity for continued evaluation of the manpower resources of the nation. This includes a study of psychiatric morbidity and how it can be more effectively combated, as well as treated, together with an analysis of the optimum use of the disabled, particularly those with marginal disabilities. This inquiry into the "war neuroses" offers the opportunity for an examination of our present knowledge of the psychoneuroses, particularly as applied to the military setting. It provides a well-documented record of the results of selection, preventive efforts and treatment and rehabilitative procedures. It allows a thoughtful evaluation of screening criteria, assignment methods and treatment programs. It permits conclusions to be drawn with profit to civilian psychiatry, the military and those charged with the after-care of the veteran. That this difficult and laborious research effort could be brought to fruition constitutes a recognition of the dedication and resourcefulness of the authors and those who assisted them.

Sex and internal secretions by William C Young( Book )

5 editions published between 1932 and 1934 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is the purpose of this book to survey the most important recent researches in problems of sex, especially those concerned with internal secretions, in order that the concepts already established by experimental evidence may be clearly stated and made readily available. While general principles can in many cases be stated concisely, the recent data have accumulated so rapidly that there has not yet been time for retesting and evaluating much of the evidence. This may account in some chapters for emphasis upon certain work with which contributors may have had personal contacts. Furthermore, sex and reproduction show such wide ranges of variation in both the structures and functions involved that major differences, even among species of higher mammals, make generalizations both difficult and dangerous. This whole field has recently undergone such rapid growth that many new questions have arisen to challenge the investigator's curiosity. An attempt will be made to indicate productive approaches to some of these unsolved or only partially solved problems. This book is intended for the reader with a moderate biological background, to whom the less involved technical terminology may not prove a serious handicap. It is not our intent that it should be a "popular book on sex." Instead, it is designed for those interested in the progress of research in problems of sex, and those who may be already engaged in investigations thereon or casting about for promising problems for investigation"--Preface.
