Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Steven U. Brint, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This multi-authored volume is a comprehensive multifaceted textbook about dementing illnesses meant to educate a diverse professional audience.
Purpose: The stated purpose of the book is to provide the practitioner and neuroscientist with information necessary to handle the diverse and rapidly emerging implications of dementing diseases including diagnosis, management and societal implications. This is an ambitious and important goal which is largely achieved.
Audience: The book is intended to provide an in-depth overview for practicing clinicians and clinical researchers including neurologists, psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, and possibly geriatricians and interested internists. It would be helpful to housestaff as a reference text. The editor is well known in the neurobiology of Alzheimer's disease.
Features: T he text has many truly excellent tables but relatively few illustrations. The few photographs are old fashioned and not state of the art. References are extensive and cover a wide timespan, however this field is advancing so rapidly that many citations, particularly involving genetics are dated. Index and table of contents are excellent. The overall appearance of the book is very good since the paper is glossy and the book is a manageable size.
Assessment: This book is a worthwhile addition for clinicians and neuroscientists wishing to have a single text which covers virtually every aspect of dementia in a relatively comprehensive manageable text. Tables and bibliographies are excellent. This is clearly an encyclopedic textbook already dated in certain parts (ex. genetics), however chapters on neuropsychology, neurobiology and degenerative dementias are excellent.

Booknews
A broad review of dementia, from molecular biological to social aspects, for clinicians and scientists. The loss of mental function is becoming more important with the rise of AIDS and Alzheimer's disease to augment the more traditional causes. Reviews the role of the many disciplines in the research on the condition, the major categories by diagnostic groupings, the principles of both biologic and nonbiologic aspects of management, and the current challenges in research and patient care. Lightly illustrated. A high quality, durable volume. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
