This volume contains four major contributions dealing with the pathology of head injury. The special feature of the book is its relevance to neurologists, neurosurgeons and to general physicians and surgeons as well as to pathologists. In all the contributions, a detailed account of how the non-specialist may approach each specific problem is given. In particular, viral encephalopathy is reviewed; this difficult area is discussed in such a manner as to maximise the information obtained from the material present. The approach to the examination of the brain described in the book is also directed at a wider audience than simply the generalist who was to do some neuropathological work. Finally, the major clinical problem of dementia is considered.
