This paper gives a very elaborate analysis of 742 cases of alcoholism (males) admitted to the Lichtenberg Asylum during the six years 1893–99. The cases are classified according to the number of previous admissions, mode of admission (from police, from hospitals, and voluntarily), length of interval in relapsing cases, duration of treatment, nature of symptoms, predisposition (heredity, trauma, epilepsy, etc.), external influences (occupation, home conditions, etc.), nature of offence in criminal cases. Further cross classifications show the relations of these different orders of fact to one another.
