The editors and contributors of Principles and Practice
of Clinical Medicine in Asia book are leading experts in virtually
all subspecialties of internal medicine. The editors have apparently tried
their utmost to involve authoritative experts from as many Asian countries
as possible. Of the 79 contributors, 62 are from Hong Kong, four are from
Thailand, three are from Taiwan, two are from Malaysia, two are from South
Korea, and one each is from Australia, Beijing, China, Japan, Singapore, the
United Kingdom, and the United States. Most sections are written as synopses
comprising both background information and recent advances.
