Commencing with European settlement in Australia and the medical practitioners of that time, The Flowering of a Waratah traces the development of neurology in Australia from its dependence on medical advances in Britain, Europe and North America to the present day where the high standards of clinical neurology and research are acknowledged internationally. The history not only expands on some of the personalities who have contributed to the present high international standing enjoyed by Australian neurology and some of the reasons for this reputation, including the Australian Association of Neurologists itself, but it also contains the records of membership and financial accounts and of papers presented to early scientific meetings of the Association. The Flowering of a Waratah is a superbly detailed account of the history of neurology in Australia which will enrich the professional lives of future generations of Australian neurologists with a sense of being, as they and the Australian Association of Neurologists continue to flourish.Hughes JF (1940) Parkinsonism: an account of the disorder and its treatment, with special reference to high atropine dosage therapy.
