The 26th volume of Clinical Neurosurgery, with 34 contributing authors, is a major review of the development of microneurosurgery. The book is divided into four major sections including microsurgery history and instrumentation, microneurosurgery technique for cerebrovascular disorders, brain and spinal cord tumors, and cranial-peripheral nerve pathology. Each author is an acknowledged expert with extensive clinical experience in his topic.

The text is concerned with detailed microsurgical anatomy and surgical management of intracranial aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations, of tumors of the skull base, pineal gland, cranial nerves, orbit, and spinal cord, of cranial nerve compression syndromes, and of peripheral nerve repair. The illustrations are lucid and both amplify and clarify appropriately the written text. The major contributor, Dr Charles G. Drake, honored guest and principal speaker at the congress, documents his unique experience with intracranial aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations.
