BACK TO LIFE by Herbert I. MD Kupper


Email this review


Timely warning, as combat veterans return in increasing numbers to civilian life. This is not intended to provoke further the ""psycho-neurosis hysteria"" already too prevalent. But it is intended to approach -- from a psychiatrist's viewpoint -- the practical problems of adjustment, the veterans' difficulties in accepting civilian standards the transference of fears and hates to home life. These problems -- and many others -- Dr. Kupper handles authoritatively, inclusively and scientifically. One could wish for a somewhat more personal, human touch, as he advises -- in abstract terms -- the mother, father, wife, brother, sister, children, how to facilitate the adjustment -- and explains the basis of the anti-social acts of the veteran. Finally, he supplements present economic privileges with plans for mental and emotional security as well. Not for wholly uninitiated laymen.
