This is written clearly and briefly and yet includes almost every entity one deals with in neuropathology. The author has succeeded in keeping together the relationship of the etiology to the pathology of each disease described. There is also a closer correlation between general pathology and the pathology of the nervous system than is found in most textbooks. The illustrations are excellent. The book is divided into fourteen chapters, on the nerve cells, the interstitial cells, the cerebrospinal fluid, vascular disease and the brain, acute bacterial infections, chronic infections, virus diseases, diseases of unknown etiology, intoxication and deficiency diseases, degenerative diseases, injuries to the nervous system, tumors of the glioma group, and errors in development. There is a small bibliography, but the works mentioned are in the English language. This book is recommended to medical students as well as to those interested in the pathology of the central nervous system.
