ABSTRACT

Theory and Practice of Histological Techniques is both a reference source for the histology laboratory and a text for a course in histological techniques, and it functions well as both. It is multiauthored, with 24 well-chosen topics as chapters, covering for the most part all stages of laboratory activity from receipt of the tissue to presentation of the final material for pathological interpretation. A chapter on preservation of gross specimens for teaching museums is a nice bonus. The treatment of fixatives and staining includes discussions of basic chemistry and outlines alternative methods, with accompanying practical comments and suggestions. Pathologists trained at one institution will appreciate the broadening experience of these authors and will be tempted to try the logically stated preferences. Pathologists will also find this a useful educational aid for their chief histotechnicians.

Probably the major weakness is its limited success in addressing both pathologists and histotechnicians. High school
