The Advances in Neurology series has been delivering useful, state-of-the-art reviews of clinical topics for almost 20 years. This, the 55th volume in the series, is quite in keeping with the high standards that have been established. The volume belongs in the library of all behavioral neurologists, epileptologists, and clinicians who have a substantial commitment to treatment of, and research in, epilepsy.

Does epilepsy predispose to violence? To psychosis? What is our current understanding of the interictal personality disorders of epilepsy? Is carbamazepine really "easier" on cognition than its competitors? Which anticonvulsants are psychotropics, and how valuable are they in actual practice? These controversies and others receive measured consideration within the chapters of this book. For example, with regard to the question of interictal behavioral disturbances that develop among patients with temporal lobe epilepsy, the contrasting viewpoints of Janice Stevens, Michael Trimble, and Frank Benson are all presented.
