Trotter's classic is probably unknown to all physicians of our time save for a small fraction who find value for today in some of the literary landmarks of historic medicine. For decades it passed entirely from attention, but with the rise of sociobiology, it merits wider attention. Trotter's great contribution in this work was his applying biologic and psychologic premises and principles to the analysis of political and social phenomena as particularly manifest in World War I.
