This well-conceived and beautifully executed book on histo- and cytopathology comes to us as a welcome reminder that the death of anatomic pathology has been all too prematurely proclaimed. By extending the range of changes into the realm of electron microscopy it proves the falsity of the claim that there is nothing new in morphology. By adopting the format of an atlas rather than a systematic textbook it makes the assimilation of histologic changes pleasant and easy. The atlas allows for attention to minute detail, without which histopathology can hardly be taught adequately. It also allows excursions into differential diagnosis, aided by charts, tables, and black-and-white sketches of the utmost simplicity and clarity. Especially good, both in themselves and because they are not easily found elsewhere, are the tables of staining reactions and of the elements of electron microscopy.

According to the author, the book is meant for medical students
