Brief Book Reviews

Atlas of Clinical Neurology
By G. David Perkin, Frank C . Rose, William Blackwood,
and Harry H . Shawdon
Philadelphia, Lippincott; London, Gozuer, 1986
228 pp, ilhstrated, $75.OO
The volume is a hybrid in which the authors have mixed
descriptions of techniques and disorders classified by anatomy, process (e.g., stroke and degeneration), symptoms, and
pathology. The book‘s illustrations consist of patient photographs, postmortem specimens, biopsy specimens, electrical
studies, angiograms, and diagrams in both black and white
and color. A few PET scans are included for good measure.
This is a fun book to browse through but may be too much
of a potpourri to be useful either as a reference source or as a
standard text. Nevertheless, the illustrations serve as a wonderful reminder of things half-forgotten or not yet learned,
and many libraries will regard this as a welcome edition.
Atlas of the Human Brain in Section, ed 2
By Melville P . Roberts, Joseph Hanawap, and I>. Kent Morest
Philadelphia, Lea G Febiger, 1987
134 pp, illustrated
The second edition of this beautifully prepared and presented atlas not only illustrates sections of the brain but also
includes a selection of brainstem and spinal cord myelin
stained sections. The material is beautifully presented and
should be invaluable to those who want to refresh their fundamental neuroanatomy, knowledge of which is now an
everyday requirement for anyone wishing to review critically
either CT or MRI images.
Brain Tumors-Their
By Klaus J. Zukh
Biology and Pathology
Berlin, Springer-Verkzg, 1986
704 pp, ilhstrated, $96.00
This is the third edition of Professor Zulch‘s masterpiece,
published especially for the benefit of English-speaking people everywhere. The book‘s organization is systematic and
comprehensive, the production is attractive, and the text is
smoothly written and interesting.
A Clinician’s View of Neuromuscular Diseases, ed 2
By Michael H . Brooke
Baltimore, William G Wilkins, 1986
388 pp, illustrated, $44.50
In this book, Dr Brooke opens with the advice, “please listen
to the patient, he is trying to tell you what disease he has.”
My advice to the reader is the same. Please listen to Dr
Brooke, he is trying to tell you what muscle disease and
chronic motor neuron disease look like to the clinician. In 9
clearly spelled-out chapters, the author reviews basic science
to help the reader understand what is known about neuromuscular disease mechanisms, and the clinical theses lead
one clearly to diagnoses. (The writing, however, predates the
discovery of the Duchenne gene.) Useful photographs supplement the text, and treatment recommendations are realistic and practical. Most clinicians and libraries will want to
have this book.
Continuity of Neural Functions from Prenatal to
Postnatal Life. Series #94; Clinics in
Developmental Medicine
Edited by H . F. R. Prechtl
Oxford, Blackwell; Philadelphia, Lippincott, 1984
225 pp, idustrated, $29.50
Produced by Spastics International of London, the book contains 15 chapters related to continuity of neural function in
prenatal and postnatal infants. The preparation is somewhat
unusual, with authors drafting individual chapters, then
cross-reviewing and refereeing these and finally holding a
week-long meeting to discuss the contents. Accordingly, the
volume is selective rather than comprehensive. Nevertheless, it is analytical, fairly critical, contains references as
late as 1982, and deserves attention from pediatric and developmental neurologists interested in either the physiology
or clinical presentations of the perinate.
Current Therapy in Neurologic Disease-2
Edited by Richard T .Johnson
Toronto, BC Decker, 1987
367 pp, illustrated, $56.00
This useful volume covers disturbances of consciousness, seizures, pains, headache, developmental abnormalities, infectious disease, inflammatory demyelinating illness, cerebrovascular disease, trauma, neoplastic disease, movement
disorder, degenerative disease, toxic disease, metabolic disease, nutritional disease, peripheral nerve disease, neuromuscular and muscle disorders, and psychiatric conditions resembling neurological illness. The book goes beyond treatment
to give a profile of the disease in question and the method of
making a diagnosis. Almost all sections contain something
that is useful in management, and most of the authors avoid
the urge to resort excessively to unproved nostrums in describing treatment results. Some sections, particularly those
dealing with the changing picture of infectious disease, are
required reading. Presumably by the time the next edition
appears there will be a chapter on managing persons with
AIDS, although the volume is sufficiently up to date to bring
that syndrome into the discussion in several different sections.
