This is the third book in the 30-volume Handbook of Clinical Neurology edited by Vinken and Bruyn. This ambitious and monumental series is to appear over the next eight years, and no doubt it will represent an important and (hopefully) enduring contribution to the neurological literature. Unfortunately, this series is very expensive; the volume reviewed herein is $35, and prices of the other six books currently appearing range from $36 to $77. Unfortunately, these high costs will make the handbook generally unavailable to students, house staff, and libraries with limited budgets.
This particular volume covers disorders of higher nervous activity. Some of the topics are esoteric; in many instances speculation must, of necessity, exceed solid scientific facts. Each chapter has a different author, and the contributors, all authorities in their particular area, are European, for the most part, with three being Russian. Thus, the viewpoint is somewhat different from that
