A History of Stroke : Its Recognition and Treatment
This volume provides a fascinating view of developments in the detection, treatment, and prevention of circulatory disorders that affect the brain. Most of what is known about cerebrovascular disease has been learned in the 20th century, so the book necessarily emphasizes recent history. It is filled with examples of how astute clinicians and scientists in the past were able to translate their observations into fundamental concepts but could not put them into practice because of technical limitations.
