The chapter on platelet-function defects is excellent; it contains many typical platelet aggregation tracings of the common qualitative platelet disorders.
In the second part of the book, management of thrombosis is very well covered. There is a chapter for each of the following: thromboprophylaxis, oral anticoagulant therapy, heparin and low molecular weight heparins, antiplatelet therapy and thrombolytic therapy. Another obvious omission is a chapter on the new antithrombotic agents, such as the pentasaccharides fondaparinux.
In contrast to other larger texts, it does not attempt to be exhaustive in its coverage of the topic. This book focuses mainly on the diagnosis and management of thrombotic and bleeding disorders. Basic research and animal data that are not relevant to clinical practice are kept to a minimum.

In each disease, the aetiology and pathophysiology are concisely discussed, but the molecular aspects of the disease mechanisms are not adequately dealt with. This book would be useful to haematologists and the laboratory scientists who work in haematology laboratories, and probably also to other medical specialists with an interest in thrombosis and haemostasis.
Beng H. Chong St. Churchill Livingstone, Edinburgh, Many chapters have been re-written and it is particularly gratifying to note how many Australian cytopathologists are amongst the listed authors.

However, the main strength of this textbook is its up-to-date treatment of the more common diagnostic areas that cytopathologists deal with on a day-to-day basis. In areas such as the breast, particular attention is paid to causes of false-positive and -negative results. Although the discussion and guidelines pertain to breastscreening in the British medical system, the principals relating to diagnostic categories, recommendations and pitfalls translate well into an Australian setting.
In these areas the material presented is current and well summarised and includes practical diagnostic applications of these new technologies. The chapters dealing with gynaecological cytology are also comprehensive and, in line with the rest of the book, well illustrated. British terminology is used in discussing cervical neoplasia, but there is also presentation and analysis of the Bethesda system.

A separate chapter dealing with the pathogenesis of cervical neoplasia and the role of human papilloma virus represents a good summary of current thought on this area. The discussion follows the same outline as in the previous edition; however, much of the information has been expanded and updated. In summary, this textbook is a comprehensive and up-to-date reference for both gynaecological and non-gynaecological cytology.
The illustrations are in colour and are of a high standard. The index is comprehensive and easy to use.
Summaries, tables and diagnostic algorithms make the book particularly useful as a day-to-day reference for practicing cytopathologists and also as a study aid for cytologists and registrars. I would highly recommend this book to anyone desiring a general textbook of cytology and believe it would make a valuable addition to departmental libraries. Many of the chapters have been revised and expanded, and the information presented is well written, relevant and up to date.

This book is a systematic and lavishly illustrated account of the diagnostic pathology of non-neoplastic disorders of the lung and pleura. Although other excellent texts on respiratory pathology of the lung are available for example, the Dail-Hammar text Pulmonary Pathology, 2nd ed, , this work is the most up-to-date compendium of, and practical guide to, non-tumour lung pathology available in English at this time.
