Al Fishman, one of the icons in the changing field of pulmonary medicine, and five associate editors have somehow succeeded in bringing 248 authors together to produce 182 chapters in this two-volume third edition. Many of the contributors are recognized leaders in the field, and others are newcomers who are making mighty contributions to its evolution. The contributors come from at least 19 disciplines outside of medicine, most notably anatomy, pathology, pediatrics, physiology, radiology, and surgery. Other disciplines include behavioral science, dermatology, molecular biology, and veterinary medicine. Most of the chapters are written by pulmonologists, infectious disease specialists, allergists and immunologists, and surgeons.
