From the Publisher"Exactly what the title promises — a comprehensive book on diagnostic histochemistry...The purpose of this book is to educate and/or remind pathologists of the clinical usefulness of histochemistry. These are worthy objectives as histochemistry still plays a major role in diagnostic pathology....The book is intended for "young pathologists" (i.e., those in training). It would be very useful, however, for "older pathologists" as a good refresher. It would also appeal to experienced histotechnologists who perform such stains and want further education as to why special stains are still used. The editor and many of the chapter authors are internationally recognized experts in diagnostic pathology....This book is stunningly beautiful."

"In the world of molecular biology, gene arrays, nanotechnology, automated staining and novel imaging systems, it is heart-warming to see the appearance of a book celebrating the survival of diagnostic staining techniques in histochemistry. It deserves a place in every pathology laboratory and medical library. There are few scientific disciplines where art, aesthetics and science are so intimately combined or have such impact despite their longevity."
