Brain Tumors: An Encyclopedic Approach

Author Affiliations


Arch Neurol. 2002;59(5):871. doi:

2nd ed, by Andrew H. Kaye and Edward R. Laws, Jr, 1052 pp, with illus, $250, London, England, Churchill Livingston, 2001.

This is an updated version of the 1995 edition, with a new chapter on gene therapy for brain tumors and more current information on clinical trials. This book represents an international effort involving 97 authors who have brought their various areas of specialization to the field of brain tumors. While each chapter stands solidly on its own, the text suffers a bit from this multiauthored approach. Redundancies and oversights commonly result but they do not substantially detract from this text.
