This book draws together a number of major epidemiological studies of the cerebral palsies from many different countries. The first chapter is a historical review by Dr Tom Ingram, who translated much of Freud's original writings on cerebral palsy, and is an acknowledged expert in this field. The editors have then drawn together critical evidence from several countries on prenatal, perinatal, and postnatal risk factors contributing to cerebral palsy and have also considered the role played by social factors. An excellent chapter by Jonathan Wigglesworth examines how these adverse factors may modify brain development and result in handicap to the child. The methodological problems of classifying and counting the cerebral palsies and assessing their frequency are fully discussed, and the difficult question of how far the perinatal health services have an impact on outcome is considered. Altogether, this is a comprehensive book on this topic, and an invaluable reference source for anyone working in the field of cerebral palsy or epidemiology.

Fine/Near Fine. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall 0632012943 Hadrback Hardback. First Edition. Very slightly sunned spine to D/J. There are many approaches to the management of cerebral plasy, and few people are conversant with them all. They are markedly different, and a decision to opt for one treatment rather than another can significantly alter the life of the child and his family. As yet there is insufficient evidence to allow a critical comparison of their efficacy or suitability for a particular child. Consequently the editor has chosen to invite six leading practitioners to discuss their views on treatment. Their approaches typify the different types of treatment and cover the range of opinions generally encountered. The book deliberately avoids criticism of the various schools of thought, allowing the authors to make their own cases for the reader to assess. In the introduction, the editor discusses some of the problems of treating cererbral palsied children and of decising what are the optimum treatment aims for a child. He also highlights some of the major criteria by which the various approaches may be compared. The book finishes with an excelllent chapter by Lindsay McLellan, in which he provides a neurological background against which all such treatments need to be viewed, and discusses the further development of our understanding of these disorders and their management. It is an interesting book, providing a unique insight of the problems and work of therapists in this field.
