This edition appearing after 7 years "strives to bridge the ever-increasing gap between the amazing advances in basic biology and their application to liver structure, function and disease."

All chapters in this volume are completely rewritten, often by new authors, and there are 28 new chapters. Seven broad sections make up the book, starting with an introduction discussing liver organization and embryology. Cells, the subject of the second section, comprise a third of the book. Sections follow on interrelated cell functions, the liver as organ, and relationship to other organs. The last two sections are on pathobiologic analysis, covering such subjects as portal hypertension, liver fibrosis, and interactions of virus with the liver, and "Horizons," 12 chapters on totally new and often poorly understood areas.
