CRC Press Unveils New Edition of the World’s Leading Neuropathology Reference

BOCA RATON, Fla., USA, June 8, 2015—Taylor & Francis Group / CRC Press, a global science, technology and medical publisher, will unveil “Greenfield's Neuropathology, Ninth Edition - Two Volume Set,” the world’s leading neuropathology reference at the American Association of Neuropathologists Annual Meeting on June 11-14, 2015, in Denver, Colorado.

Conference attendees who visit the CRC Press booth at the meeting will receive an exclusive discount on the book along with other show specials. This edition includes an eBook version with the purchase of the print book that features rapid search functions, annotation and bookmarking facilities, image collections and live reference links.

Every year, more than 50 million people are diagnosed with a neurological disorder [from Alzheimer and Parkinson disease, strokes, multiple sclerosis and epilepsy to migraine, brain injuries and neuroinfections]. Neurological disorders affect people of every age, but are more common in people older than 50 (1).

Greenfield's Neuropathology” (ISBN: 978-1-4987-2128-8) provides a comprehensive account of the pathological findings in neurological disease, their biological basis and their clinical manifestations. The updated Ninth Edition features new contributing experts who provide a fresh perspective, while retaining the depth, breadth and quality of content so praised in previous editions.

According to the book’s editors, Seth Love, Arie Perry, James Ironside and Herbert Budka, “Greenfield’s Neuropathology holds a special place in the heart of most neuropathologists. It has long been a standard-bearer of our specialty.” The editors also note that, “In 1921, Joseph Godwin Greenfield and Edward Farquhar Buzzard published 'Pathology of the Nervous System,' which had a key role in defining neuropathology as a distinct specialty. The authors set out to describe clearly the anatomical changes which are associated with disorders of nervous function, to discuss briefly questions of pathogenesis, and to indicate in a few words, where it is possible, the relationship between structural alterations and clinical signs and symptoms.”

Known for its thorough yet practical approach, “Greenfield's Neuropathology” continues to provide trusted information to neuropathologists and those in related specialties, including neurologists, neurosurgeons, general pathologists, neuroradiologists and clinical neuroscientists. Interested readers can download a sample chapter of the new edition here.

The previous edition of this book received compelling reviews and has been identified as “... a magnificent piece of work, an absolute gem, and unreservedly recommended,” said Clinical Neurology & Neurosurgery about the Eighth Edition. And Wiley’s Histopathology Journal said, “There is no doubt that the new Greenfield’s is magnificent: the radical changes introduced over the two editions have both restored the book's pre-eminence in the field and made it a truly international enterprise.”
