This fourth edition in just 20 years clearly attests to the popularity and appropriateness of this text in a crowded field of fine products. Extraordinary advances are rampant in basic science, genetics, and treatments of liver disease with only diagnostic methods remaining fairly static. This edition strives to provide everything a student of liver disease needs to know in one place and essentially achieves this lofty goal.

To incorporate the many changes, the editors have recruited totally new authors for half the chapters and inspired each to critically summarize the assigned field, frequently using summary tables and cartoons to convey complex ideas or vast quantities of data.
