This book consists of papers on all phases of the subject by twenty-six prominent American investigators of nervous diseases, together with questions and comments by members of the "Commission" of the Association, and conclusions by the commission as a whole. The most interesting chapter is that by G. B. Hassin on the pathology. He considers the lesions as purely degenerative, not inflammatory, a view not shared by some of those present, as seen from the record of the animated discussion. The book can be recommended as setting forth in a novel and fascinating manner all that is known about this peculiar disease, including the results of the most recent researches in many countries.
