It is, of course, a trite observation to say that we live "in a period of transition." Many people have said this at many times. Adam may well have made the remark to Eve on leaving the Garden of Eden.—Harold MacMillan

In the preface to the latest edition of his well-respected textbook of vascular surgery, editor Robert Rutherford comments, "The fifth edition of Vascular Surgery comes at the millennium, a time when everyone tends to reflect on changes occurring over the past century. . . ." He then points out that significant changes in the field of vascular surgery have occurred over a much shorter time frame, a good deal since the last edition of the textbook in 1995.
