Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(7), 598. Reviews the book, Alzheimer's disease: Senile dementia and related disorders. Aging, Vol. 7 by Robert Katzman, Robert D. Terry, and Katherine L. Bick (Eds.) (1978). One of several books that have recently appeared on the topic of the dementias, this book contains 56 relatively short contributed chapters divided into three sections: “Nosology,” “Epidemiology, and “Etiology and Pathophysiology.” Both clinician and researcher will find this volume of interest and an adequate introduction to current thought and controversy surrounding a significant health problem that has, until recently, not received the attention that it deserves.
