This symposium on headache consists of 13 chapters contributed by wellknown specialists in the field. A review of the mechanisms of headache by Kunkel describes the pathologic physiology producing this type of pain, and the methods by which the physician can diagnose the various types of headache.

A chapter by Friedman and Merritt, the editors, follows on the principles of pharmacotherapy, including the choice of drugs, indications for their use, and contraindications. The eye as a source of headache has been covered by Max Chamlin. The editors have also written a separate chapter on migraine, which will be of value to ophthalmologists.

This book should be in every ophthalmological library.
