This is a fine, multiauthored monograph answering the need for a readily available reference on the neurological side effects of radiation and chemotherapy. The clinical presentation and pathophysiology of the various peripheral and central nervous system side effects of radiation and chemotherapy for malignancy are well covered. With the exception of an extensive chapter on arterial chemotherapy for central nervous system malignancy, an experimental modality limited by unacceptable side effects, the book appropriately covers all practical modalities of cancer therapy. There is a modicum of inevitable redundancy, which improves the value of each chapter as a single resource on the specific modality reviewed. The bibliographies are extensive.

This book is highly recommended for all physicians who are involved with the care of cancer patients.
