This is the English translation of Bing's Lehrbuch der Nervenkrankheiten. It contains thirty chapters. The translator has rearranged and augmented the original for adaptation to American usage. Despite this the cogent observations and conclusions of Professor Bing are retained. If in neurology one must be methodical and accurate, it follows that the discussion of entities should facilitate an easy understanding as far as possible instead of forcing the student to memorize signs and symptoms. Professor Bing has written this book with the former idea in mind. All the chapters are abreast of the time and are written for the student, constituting as well an excellent reference book for the neurologist. Following each section there is a large bibliography of both American and foreign contributors. Considerable discussion regarding treatment together with written prescriptions are to be found. There are chapters on peripheral nerves, dyskinesias, muscular atrophies, degenerative diseases, demyelinating disorders, syphilis
