The two volumes on Parkinson's disease in the "Handbook of Clinical Neurology" (Series Editors: Michael J. Aminoff, Department of Neurology, University of California, San Francisco, USA; Francois Boller, Bethesda, USA; Dick F. Swaab, Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience, Amsterdam, the Netherlands) cover a group of disorders that constitute the commonest of neurodegenerative diseases and one that is assuming ever greater importance with the aging of the population in developed countries. The coverage reflects the dramatic advances in understanding of the biochemical background of parkinsonism and the resulting developments in the pharmacological management of the disease.These volumes give a comprehensive account of the subject for both clinical neurologists and those researching in the neurosciences. Part I covers the scientific background, general aspects of Parkinson's disease, clinical aspects and etiology. Part II covers the medical and surgical treatment of Parkinson's disease, complications of therapy and the other parkinsonian syndromes.
