This book deals mainly with a description of the changes that disease produces in the human body. It is intended to serve as an introductory textbook on pathologic anatomy, gross and microscopic, and to provide groundwork for understanding the functional disturbances and clinical manifestations of disease. In accord with usage, the book is divided into two parts, General Pathology, 414 pages, and Systemic Pathology, 534 pages. In the first part, each chapter is preceded by a helpful tabulation of the contents. A selected and useful bibliography is given at the end of every chapter.
