Dublin has created a readable monograph, in which he emphasizes central auditory pathology as a potential source for sensorineural hearing impairment. The thrust of his thesis is to make otologists, pathologists, and neurologists familiar with the histopathological alterations in the central auditory nuclei that occur as a result of a wide variety of disease processes. The work discusses the normal anatomical findings in the auditory labyrinth, as well as describing the normal histological appearance of the cochlear nucleus, olivary complex, inferior colliculus, medial geniculate body, and auditory cortex. The book is well illustrated and contains numerous photomicrographs of both central and peripheral auditory pathology in a wide variety of disease conditions. This work represents a welcome addition to the recent monographs on the pathology of the ear by Harold Schuknecht in the United States and Imre Friedmann in London.

Dublin is to be congratulated for broadening our view about sensorineural
