The seventh edition of this textbook brings us up to date with many of the current advances and concepts in the field of histology. The most notable addition is the clear electron micrographs which have been added to several sections of the book. Although many chapters have not been altered much in this new edition, rather extensive revisions and additions have been made in areas covering the cell, skin, nervous tissue, and hormones. The clear and accurate presentation of the subject of histology, the excellent plates, and the adequate references to original literature make this textbook a must for medical students and a valuable asset to the physician's library.
