This is the seventh edition of the classic textbook on child neurology by John Menkes. Harvey Sarnat and Bernard Maria join him along with 22 total contributors. In the first edition, Menkes stated his aim to incorporate knowledge derived from the basic neurologic sciences into the clinical evaluation and management of the child with neurologic disease. He accomplished this task with extensive use of literature references. Similarly, in this edition, Menkes states that he and his coeditors are attempting to provide the reader with the most recent advances in the neurosciences and to integrate them into the clinical practice of pediatric neurology. The 1186-page volume (including 30-page index) has an introduction on the pediatric neurologic examination, followed by 18 multiauthor chapters. The text cites a prodigious 11 798 references.
