Editorial Reviews

Brint"
Written by three eminent clinical neurologists, this renowned text is a detailed exposition of the complete spectrum of neurological illness and dysfunction. This sixth edition does not deviate from the previously successful format of organizing the text into two parts. The first part is organized around key neurological signs and symptoms, such as disorders of gait, pain in the back, neck and extremities, and common disturbances of vision. Important clinical terminology, pathophysiology, historic background, and key classifications are presented in each chapter. The second half is a concise but extremely thorough exposition of major categories of disease, such as inherited metabolic disease, developmental diseases, degenerative diseases, and diseases of the spinal cord, peripheral nerve, and muscle. Neurologists, neurosurgeons, practicing internists, emergency physicians, and pediatricians are the intended audience for this book. There are excellent chapters on the growth and development of the nervous system that highlight abnormal development and the neurology of aging. Two definitive chapters on the neurology of alcohol abuse and the neurological effects of drugs and toxins are provided. The last section provides the reader with a clinical description of key psychiatric illnesses. The clinical information in this text is superb, although the general reader without strong motivation and/or a good foundation in basic neuroscience may find certain parts difficult to follow. The reader may need to navigate to several parts of the book to find the information he or she is seeking. In addition, only the most essential information about therapeutics is provided, and this is sparselyillustrated. This has been the premier clinical neurology text for almost the past two decades and remains so. It is studied carefully by most neurologists in training. This revision has maintained high standards of writing and editing. Despite the phenomenal explosion of information in this field, the authors have managed to maintain a concise and meaty volume with careful attention to accuracy and a conservative perspective.

Explains principles of neurology with consideration of cardinal manifestations of neurologic disease. Early chapters consist of a detailed exposition of symptoms and signs of disordered nervous function, their analysis in terms of anatomy and physiology, and their clinical implications. Middle chapters give an account of the natural clustering of these phenomena into syndromes, and later chapters describe main categories and types of disease that express themselves by each syndrome. Unlike many references in the field, coverage of pediatric and geriatric neurology is presented, as well as psychiatric syndromes and major psychiatric diseases and the neuropsychiatric effects of alcohol and drug abuse. This sixth edition takes into account new discoveries in molecular genetics, PET and SPECT scanning, and current treatment methods. B&w illustrations include MRI images, and avoid illustrations of gross and microscopic neuropathology. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
Booknews
A revised and updated (4th edition, 1989) introduction to neurologic medicine for students and residents, emphasizing the presentation of observed clinical phenomena, along with the underlying physiologic and pathologic changes, rather than new discoveries in biologic science. In contrast to the standard textbooks of neurology, in which the many diseases of the nervous system are described in succession, the present text introduces the subject with a discussion of the phenomenology, or cardinal manifestations, of neurologic disease. This is followed by an account of the various syndromes of which these symptoms are a part, and this, in turn, by a consideration of the diseases that express themselves by each syndrome.
