My absolute favourite recently has been the "little" Kandel: 
Knadel, Schwartz, Jessell (eds.): "Essentials of Neural Science and
behavior". Prentice Hall, 1995, ISBN 0-8385-2247-5. 742 pp., very
readable.
  But this is also because I like the amount of molecular stuff, the
connection to behavior, the ease of reading, and I do not mind the lack 
of anatomy. As an introduction to neurosciences, I do recommend this.

For my medical students, who take an integrated course in neurobiology
featuring both clinical anatomy, physiology and paharmacology, I am
presently considering 
  Conn: "Neuroscience in Medicine", Lippincott, 1995, ISBN
0-397-51279-1, 688 pp., 472 illustrations.
There is a companion volume Jennes, Traurig and Conn: "Atlas of the 
Human Brain", Lippincott, 1995, ISBN 0-397-51277-5.
  This/these do not have any pharmacology either, but a considerable
amount of anatomy and neurology. Out anatomy teachers now favour this
compared to their previous choice of Nolte: "The Human Brain", Mosby,
1993. 
  I think this book of Conn's may be what you would want if you think 
of an introduction to clinical neurology.

Good luck.
