This volume, best described as a research monograph, summarizes work spanning 20 years by a prodigious research team led by the author and involving more than 700 subjects. Dr Robinson hoped to bring together in his book the broad range of emotional and behavioral disturbances seen after cerebrovascular accidents, to deal with diverging findings from other research teams, and to highlight the relevance of these findings through clinical outcomes studies. For the most part, he succeeds admirably.
