This slim volume is of particular value because it represents the first detailed presentation of the author's views on this subject in the English language. A major thesis is that there are common features in the pathogenesis of the three recognized etiologic types of strokes and that neurogenic circulatory disturbances are important in the development of these processes. The author presents an excellent historical background and makes free use of descriptive and photographic material which appeared in his older works. It is predictable that many readers will disagree with the conclusions expressed here. The amount of historical and descriptive information in this book and the comprehensive approach of the author to the problem make this text a valuable source of information.
