The 11th edition of this large, comprehensive textbook appears 3 years after the 10th. The revisions are extensive, with many new authors and 10 new chapters, but total pages are slightly fewer, as are the references and index entries. The book now has 108 chapters and approximately 280 authors. The majority of chapters have multiple authors; an interesting feature is the coauthorship of many of the most important chapters by leading experts from more than one institution.
