This magnificent atlas, the first edition of which appeared in
1963-64, has been out of print for some time. The present
edition complements Perhkompf's original illustrative material, with new color plates as well as roentgenograms that
amplify the anatomical drawings. The result is an atlas of
the highest quality that will undoubtedly have great appeal.

Tyler, H . R., and Dauison, D . M . iedri, Current Neurology, Vol2. Boston, Houghton Mzyflin Professional Puhli.rher.r,

The volume provides at least partially critical reviews of developments in eleven areas of concern and interest to the
clinical neurologist. Topics include neuronluscular disorders, demyelinating disease, degenerative disease, extrapyramidal disorders, vascular disease, seizure disorders,
neoplastic disease, higher cortical function, basic neuroscience, diagnostic studies, and neurological aspects of medical disease.
Vinken, P.J., and Bruyn, G . W . (ed.rEst, Neurological Manifestations of Systemic Diseases, Part I (Handbook
of Clinical Neurology, Vol 38). Amsterdam, Elreiiierl
North-Holland, 1979, $146.50
This volume aims to fill in spaces not satisfactorily covered
in other volumes of the Handbook that also deal with systemic disorders. As a result, the organization is somewhat
less systematic than that marking other books of the series.
Nevertheless, a wide variety of important subjects is covered, with 28 chapters ranging widely in content from
hematological to cardiovascular t o rheumatoid-osseous
disorders to entities of unknown cause. Good though the
book is, it emphasizes even more the serious limitation of
the Handbook series, which is the lack of a continuously
updated index that would provide quick entry to the
monumental effort which this shelf of books represents.
T h e foreword to the volume indicates that Vincken an11
Bruyn are nearing the end of their task. This seems a good
time to thank them for their efforts.
Vinken, P. J . , and Bruyn, G . W . (eds),intoxications of the
Nervous System, Part I1 (Handbook of Clinical
Neurology, Vol 37). Amsterdam, EIsez'ierlNorth-Halland.
1979, $119.50
This is the somewhat delayed companion to a two-volume
pair that together provide the most comprehensive available coverage of this important subject. Twenty-four
chapters cover various topics. More arcane areas, difficult
to find elsewhere, include the effects of snake venoms,
marine toxins, neurological complications of various arthropod and insect stings, toxicity of local and general
anesthetics, TCP poisoning, and Jamaica vomiting sickness. More standard poisons, including SMON, narcotics,
stimulants, and opiates, are also included.
Williams, M., Brain Damage: Behavior and the Mind.
New York,John Wiley & Sons, 1979, $19.95
The author, a clinical psychologist, has written a generally
clear text on a complicated subjecr. The volume should be
valuable for interested students in various courses but is
too elementary to be useful to physicians.
