The twelfth edition of this classic neurology textbook builds on the success of the previous editions, including further contributions from highly experienced and well established authorities in their fields. As in previous editions the book is arranged by disorder to provide detailedcoverage of the full range of major neurological conditions. There are various new and revised sections, including an updated section on genetics and on developmental neurology, and the introductory chapters have been re-organised and substantially re-written. Extensively referenced and in onecomplete and comprehensive volume, this new edition continues to be the definitive guide to clinical neurology.
Michael Donaghy is a Reader in Clinical Neurology and Consultant Neurologist at John Radcliffe Hospital and the University of Oxford, UK.
