This book is stated to be "the result of twenty years' experience in teaching anatomy of the brain and cord in such a manner as to enable the students to approach nervous diseases, thinking in terms of anatomy, physiology and pathology, as applied to the nervous system." Such a manner cannot be commended too highly. The ordinary wide separation between the teaching of anatomy, physiology and clinical neurology is responsible for many of the delusions relating to the difficulty of this subject which most students inherit. Part I supplies a laboratory manual for the study of the nerves and tracts in the central nervous system. Parts II and III "form the basis of a course of thirty lectures, giving in part II a summary of the anatomy and physiology of the nerve tracts... and in part III the leading features of the better known nervous diseases, correlating their symptomatology with
