This textbook of pathology for undergradute medical students is targeted directly at the core syllabus and presents the essential information required by undergraduates. In addition, it presents pathology in the context of modern medicine and cellular biology. The book is structured around the basic principles of pathology, the mechanisms of disease and then the systematic pathology (specific diseases affecting individual body systems or organs). To furnish a proper understanding of pathology, each chapter in the systematic section begins with a brief account of the normal structure and function of the organ or system. This edition responds to global changes in medical education by delivering the important concepts and principles. Each chapter also begins with an introductory summary to give essential definitions and core facts.

James Underwood is the Professor of Pathology at the University of Sheffield, UK, and a Consultant Histopathologist. For over 30 years, James has enjoyedthe challenge of teaching pathology to students of medicine, dentistry and related subjects, while diagnosing disease in the living and the dead and researching into its causes.
James graduated in medicine and started his career in pathology in London before going to Sheffield. During his early career he held a research fellowship from the Medical Research Council and in the early 1980s he had a sabbatical in Australia. His main interests arein breast cancer and chronic inflammatory liver disease. James is currently Vice-President of the Royal College of Pathologists, President of the BritishDivision of the International Academy of Pathology, and Editor of "Histopathology", a monthly journal. He was, of course, delighted to be declared a Winner at the Royal Society of Medicine's Book Awards 2000 for the third edition of "General and Systematic Pathology".
His main interest outside work is leisure! But he also enjoys strenuous walks with his family in wet, wild and windy places, and he has a passionate interest in music.
"This edition is even better than the previous ones. The introduction of an associated website will make it even more useful for students. This book would be a worthy prize winner. The quality of writing and all other aspects are, in my opinion, outstanding and a great achievement for the authors."

"'Underwood Pathology' is one of the great brand names of medical undergraduate textbooks. The brilliance of the book is in making concepts clear enough to grasp, without skimping on the detail. The format and layout of this latest edition are virtually identical to the excellent 3rd edition, the most notable difference being the great thickness of the newer text. Underwood has always been the best book on the market, in my opinion, and this updated version further improves this 'classic'. Go buy."
