Since Nissl and Alzheimer passed away, Jakob of Hamburg and Spielmeyer of Munich have been the leading neuropathologists in Germany. The present book, the thirty-seventh of the excellent series of neuropsychiatric monographs edited by Foerster and Wilmanns, is dedicated to the memory of Alzheimer, once the teacher of Jakob. Those interested in neuropathology will here find a difficult subject treated by a master. The bulk of the book is taken up by detailed histologic description and analysis of the author's own material. The abundant illustrations, though not colored, are nevertheless excellent. The basal ganglions and their diseases, chorea, parkinsonism, Wilson's disease and athetosis form the main subject.
