Although the title of this book is not inaccurate, it may be somewhat misleading. Rather than being a comprehensive text on Parkinson's disease, it is a collection of almost 90 papers from the Ninth International Symposium on Parkinson's Disease held in Jerusalem, Israel, in June 1988. As such, it probably has little appeal for medical students, nonneurologists, or, possibly, even general neurologists. On the other hand, for those of us with an interest in Parkinson's disease, this book provides a wonderfully diverse smorgasbord of recent clinical and neurobiological research topics related to Parkinson's disease and the basal ganglia.
The papers in this collection are parceled into the following seven sections: "Normal and Pathological Anatomy," "Neurochemistry and Pharmacology," "Neurophysiology," "Toxicology and Environment," "Clinical Aspects," "Current Therapy and Side Effects," and "Therapeutic Research and Developments." The length of the contributions ranges from four to 16 pages and, as might be expected in
