An impressive amount of work, experimental, statistical and "observa tional" or "phenomenological" has been done in psychiatry during the past 30 to 40 years. Although Sullivan's achievements have placed him in the first rank of psychiatry, some of the work done since he died in 1949 can be assimilated to enchance his achievements. For this reason, I enlisted the aid of Menachem Melinek, M.D., whose wide knowledge of re cent and contemporary psychiatric studies is admirably suited to the task of assimilating some of them to Sullivan's theories.
