This is the third edition of the hematology textbook introduced in 1991 by a five-member editorial board. Among the four major hematology textbooks available, it is one of the most recent adjuncts to the hematologist's armamentarium.
The editors' aim was to satisfy the needs of a broad readership. Targeted readers include the practicing hematologist in the private sector or the academic institution, the basic scientist drawn to the rapidly expanding and scientifically intricate molecular hematology field, and the student in training. The five initial editors, who have outstanding records of achievement in both the clinical and scientific realms, are well positioned to bring these two diverging yet complementary arenas into focus within the same book. Subsequent to the first edition, two new editors who are recognized authorities in the fields of transfusion medicine and transplantation have added their insights.
