These two unusual volumes are the work of 32 authors, edited by a team of four, led by Dr Jennette of Chapel Hill, NC. The style is remarkably uniform, and each section has a short prologue by one of the editors.
The first section has five chapters on basic renal structure and disease diagnosis. The second section has nine chapters on glomerular diseases, especially those with immunologic attributes. The third section deals with tubular, interstitial, and infectious conditions. The fourth has 11 chapters on vascular diseases. The last section is on miscellany, including neoplasms.
