Summary

Born in Vienna in 1864, Bernard Hollander was a London-based psychiatrist in the early twentieth century. He is best known for being one of the main proponents of the interest in phrenology at that time. This title, originally published in 1916 deals with "the nervous defects of children, and the various forms and degrees of mental and moral deficiency that may occur from infancy up to the age of twenty-one." Very much of its time, it looks at both what it calls the "subnormal" and the "supernormal" child, the causes of abnormality and suggests ways of educating children in order to minimise their defects and maximise their abilities. An opportunity to enjoy a historical look at child psychology from the early twentieth century.
