Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This atlas and instructional text is intended for use by pathologists, dental specialists, and interested students. These are admirable goals . . It is a good introduction as the title implies . . The author is an outstanding, well established expert in this field. . The diagrams and photographs are truly outstanding. The gross photographs of tissue specimens are the best I have seen in any book . . This stands alone in the field as a replacement for extinct texts . ."
