The appearance of the second edition of this Textbook of Neurology just four years after the first is testimony of its excellence and of the rapid advances in clinical therapeutic neurology. Dr. Merritt again, as in his first edition, presents us with a concise, clear account of the various neurological syndromes and brings us up to date on pathophysiology and treatment. He has brought his text up to date on the fundamental discoveries in metabolic and viral diseases of the nervous system. Advances in the treatment of cerebrovascular diseases are included, but he has introduced a note of caution concerning anticoagulant therapy of cerebrovascular disease.

This new edition is well illustrated and punctuated with a series of excellent tables. The author's style is notably direct and clear.

This text is recommended as an outstanding addition to the neurological literature for students and physicians alike.
