This atlas is well organized, of handy size, and profusely illustrated; the accompanying text is concise and authoritative. The material is grouped into five sections covering histology and embryology, developmental disturbances, diseases of teeth and supporting structures, diseases of the oral mucosa and jaws, and neoplasms. In general, diseases with similar causes are grouped together and others are arranged according to anatomic site. Each page contains three uniformly sized illustrations with a brief descriptive text containing a precise definition of each entity, a description of the illustrations, both histological and gross, and other pertinent information. There are 20 pages of references; the index appears to be complete. The book should appeal to student, teacher, and clinician, for it is an excellent graphic reference guide.
