This book is the printed record of papers delivered at the second symposium on Neurological Surgery of the Ear in 1979. Like volume 1, a report on the first symposium in 1977, it makes exciting reading. Collecting this and future biannual volumes will provide an excellent means of keeping abreast of the diagnostic and surgical advances in the rapidly expanding field of neurotologic surgery.

The book is divided into seven sections: Meniere's disease (including sac and shunt procedures and neurectomies), surgical anatomy of the temporal bone, facial nerve, acoustic neuromas, other cerebellopontine angle tumors, glomus tumor surgery, and an excellent section on hearing preservation in tumors involving the cochlear nerve. The chapter authors are each noted specialists in their field, and, with the occasional exception, each of the 54 chapters deals with its topic in considerable depth. There is an abundance of useful factual information with clear and well-reproduced illustrations.
