This concise monograph is one in the publisher's series of "American Lectures in Internal Medicine" and, as such, continues to maintain the high level of scholarship set by the preceding publications. The subject is discussed not only from the limited aspect of the ear but from the broader aspect of the entire body as well, with dizziness being classified into two groups: nonsystematized and systematized. The former is regarded in its application to the eyes, the proprioceptive system, and the central nervous system. The latter is taken up in the following order: the end-organ, eighth nerve, the nuclei, and brain stem. The differential diagnosis having been made easier by close attention to history and clinical details, a basis is established for rational therapy. For a quick review of the subject of dizziness, this book is suitable.
