The third edition of this two-volume text has two new editors (Goadsby
and McArthur) and 216 eminent contributors. More than three quarters of the
contributors, who are mainly from the United States and United Kingdom, are
new to this edition. The book's purpose is "to focus on the mechanisms of
neurological disease and the principles that form the basis for management
and therapeutics." The book is attractively and extensively formatted and
illustrated with 200 line diagrams, 200 halftones, 25 color plates, 50 figures,
and 350 tables. Table 1 compares
this edition with the prior ones.
