Alzheimer Disease: The Changing Scene By Robert Katzman and Katherine Bick, 387 pp, Academic Press, San Diego, CA, 2000.

As author Katherine Bick describes, this recently-published book "analyzes the Alzheimer's research environment from 1960-1980, a time when the foundations for the explosive growth of interest in Alzheimer's were being laid. Interviews with pioneers of that formative period provide an unequalled view of the passions and arguments that drove the biomedical researchers, care providers, and family members to attack the seemingly intractable issues posed by Alzheimer's."
