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.
