The first edition established "Pulmonary Pathology" as the definitive book in its field. Like its predecessor, this new second edition is remarkable for its authoritative chapters by the leading authorities, exquisite reproduction of illustrations and a sturdy binding. Plus, the second edition has new chapters on tuberculosis, AIDS, transplantation pathology, lung sampling, lung defenses, common pathways and patterns of injury, and more. From the reviews of the 1st edition: "This is a hefty and magnificent book; hefty in its size and magnificent in the quality of its contents and production. Virtually every topic in pulmonary pathology is adequately covered in this book; and there is a good index that numbers 20 pages. While all of the chapters are well-written, some are outstanding. The illustrations are almost without exception beautifully reproduced. Every student and all practicing physicians of chest disease (internist, surgeon, radiologist, and pathologist) need an authoritative source of information on pulmonary pathology, and this is the book to turn to." - Mayo Clinic Proceedings #1.
"Unquestionably, the best book on pulmonary pathology, a definitive text of encyclopedic proportions." - Modern Pathology #2. "This multi-authored, encyclopedic book is well written, beautifully illustrated, and gorgeously printed. The data and material hard to find elsewhere are included here in a cornerstone publication" - Mayo Clinic Proceedings #3.
