This multi-authored work provides a comprehensive account of both general and systemic pathology in the modern context. Each chapter has been written by a panel of internationally acknowledged experts and incorporates the most recent advances in the field. Volume II covers the pathology of the systems. Newer techniques are integrated, including immunocytochemistry and molecular biology, as they apply to each organ system. Pathology has been described in its clinical context. The approach in each of the system chapters is to describe normal structure and function followed by a description and analysis of the structural and cellular bases of particular diseases. The pathobiology and clinical consequences of pathological processes are emphasized. The intent is to explain gross structural and microscopic observations in disease at a molecular level and point out their clinical relevance. A chapter is devoted to special investigative techniques in pathology including exfoliative and fine needle aspiration cytopathology, together with more recent molecular techniques such as in situ hybridization.

'The illustrations are good and sufficiently numerous to demonstrate the lesions for the surgical pathologist. The color photographs are particularly excellent. The broader scientific expositions found in each area are well written and intriguing when read in the context of a specific
question. Some day I would like to see a work as comprehensive as this presented on optical disk for computer access ... This large book is a worthwhile reference.'
