This is the second volume of a "Lehrbuch der Neurologie"; the first volume will be concerned with the technique of examination, the basic scientific foundations for interpretation of clinical neurological syndromes, and the description of those syndromes. This is a colossal task for a single author, but such a treatise has been needed since Oppenheim's classic work has become obsolete, and Professor Schaltenbrand is well qualified to accomplish it. He was well trained in fundamentals in the laboratories of Magnus (Utrecht), Brouwer (Amsterdam), and Cobb (Boston). He spent a year in the neurosurgical clinic of Cushing, was many years the assistant of Nonne, and is head of the neurological clinic in Würzburg. With an excellent knowledge of the English and French languages, he has been in a position to follow the literature of neurology in most of its essential sources, but, during the war, the latest developments were not available
