Dr. Merritt again has produced a concise, current neurology text. Since the fourth edition (1967), only eight pages have been added to the body of the book despite extensive updating to keep pace with rapid advances in the field. Reference lists have been augmented. New topics have been added, including normal pressure hydrocephalus, brain death, and primary amebic meningoencephalitis. Six contributors have rewritten sections on convulsive and biochemical disorders, viral infections, developmental defects, and diseases of brain, muscle, and the cerebrovascular system.
Although the book is multiauthored for the first time, it maintains the well-organized format of previous editions. Diseases
