The neurologic profession is indeed fortunate to have had Professor von Economo write his own conception, particularly of the discovery of epidemic encephalitis, before his untimely demise, which occurred a few months ago following the meeting of the First International Neurological Congress held in Berne in the summer of 1931. There is no question that von Economo deserves credit for the original description of this disease. This is brought out clearly in the text. The book as a whole gives an excellent conception of this now well known disease. The references at the end of the book are of great value, but a complete reference can best be obtained in the book on this disease published by the Matheson Commission. The translation has been well done.
