The author of this volume is one of the world's most outstanding neuropathologists. She has always been forthright in drawing and expressing her conclusions. Even those who have disagreed with her have admired her approach to pathological problems. This is an excellent book. It is concisely and clearly written. It is not encyclopedic, as is the much larger book by Zülch (published as vol. 3 of the "Handbuch der Neurochirurgie" in 1956), but it is adequate. It also contains appropriate bibliographic references. The photomicrographs are well chosen and clearly reproduced. The concluding chapter on tissue culture is a stimulating addition. This technique has never been fully exploited in our study of neoplasms and their treatment, and this intriguing subject is well presented here. Everyone interested in learning about tumors of the nervous system and their pathological characteristics should find this a useful book. It is recommended without reservation.
