Revised throughout, the 5th Edition of this leading reference presents a complete and up-to-date review and analysis of all aspects of endocrinology, diabetes, and bone metabolism. Readers will also find state-of-the-art information on genetics, proteinomics, and hormone signaling, and coverage of the field's hottest topics in nearly 20 new chapters. Joined by an international team of leading experts—many new to this edition—Drs. Jameson and DeGroot provide guidance that integrates the basic science of endocrinology with clinical medicine and the practical management of endocrine disorders. A clinical focus emphasizes diagnosis and therapy.

• Features the work of the world's leading authorities—many new to this edition.

• Organizes information into basic and clinical sections that makes reference quick and easy.

• Provides tables designed to summarize and organize information, and presents over 1,400 illustrations that clarify complex concepts.

• Examines the hottest topics in the field today through 19 new chapters including Endocrinology: Impact on science and medicine · Application of genomics and proteinomics to endocrinology · Genetic syndromes in endocrinology · Genetics and syndromes of obesity · Role of the adipocyte in metabolism and endocrine function · Genetic Defects and Disorders of Bone · and Adrenal causes of hypercortisolism.

Editorial Reviews

William D. Kerr
This 3rd edition (previous editions 1979 and 1989) is the most comprehensive and definitive single-source, available reference of endocrinology (the study of ductless glands and hormones or, contemporarily, the study of cell-to-cell communication by messenger molecules traversing an extra-cellular space, permitting cellular cooperation, biological diversity, and survival. These books' purpose is to present, traditionally and newly integrated, the accumulated understanding of the human endocrine system and the diseases that emanate from its disordered function. This worthy objective is achieved within a fabric of historical perspective and of extensive, evolving, reliable and tested scientific base, clearly articulated as art and science of endocrinology broadly related to physiological and pathological function. This text is especially valuable to endocrinologists (fellows, clinicians, researchers, and teachers), internists, other specialists, and medical school, hospital and departmental libraries world-wide. The 246 international authors and editors, each an accomplished researcher or acknowledged teacher, are credible experts in their fields. These scholarly, eminently readable books have a distinguished appearance. The 160 concise, thorough chapters, relating to nine traditional and six nonclassical endocrine organs and their secretions, are complementary and seldom redundant. The table of contents provides an excellent scheme for organizing contemporary molecular endocrinology, for presenting gland physiology and dysfunction, and for integrating endocrine aspects of important functions such as reproduction, feeding, obesity, and aging. There is reasoned emphasis on illustrations,figures, and/or tables to clarify each topic, leading to enhanced understanding and retention of material. These books are essential for endocrinologists, academicians, and medical libraries as the definitive reference work, enhancing initial and continued endocrinological education, practice, and discovery. This new edition is needed to present extensive new material and to serve as framework for understanding, judging, and synthesizing further developments in endocrinology.
Second edition of a standard reference work. Revised from the 1979 edition. New topics include: interleukins, hormonal mediators of inflammation in chemotaxis; hormones controlling blood production; hormonal regulation of appetite. Three volumes contain authoritative studies on: principles of hormone actions; the pituitary, neuroendocrinology; thyroid gland; parathyroids; pancreas; adrenal cortex; catecholamines and adrenal medulla; sexual differentiation and puberty; reproductive function in the female; endocrinology of pregnancy; the male reproductive system; multihormonal systems and disorders. Over 1230 illustrations. Extensive references. A fine companion to DeGroot's Thyroid. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Arthur B. Schneider, MD, PhD (University of Illinois at Chicago)
Description: This is the fourth edition, published after an interval of six years, of this three volume treatise. The number of chapters has increased from 160 to 194, the number of pages have decreased from 3024 to 2621 (in part due to reduced margins and smaller type) and the price bas gone down (!) from $510 to $495. Among the new chapters are ones on diagnostic methods and pharmaceutical therapies.
Purpose: This book provides "one stop shopping" for comprehensive information about endocrinology and coverage spans basic concepts to the most practical applications in the clinical arena. This title uniquely occupies the multivolume, comprehensive endocrine textbook niche. The current edition does not disappoint.
Audience: Practicing endocrinologists, clinical and basic endocrinology investigators, and endocrine fellows are the principal targets of this book. Internists, radiologists, and surgeons will find this to be a reliable primary source. No medical library should be without it.
Features: This book is well organized and achieves its goal of providing comprehensive coverage. In addition to sections devoted to the traditional endocrine organ systems, there are many integrative sections and chapters (e.g., principles of hormone action, immunology and endocrinology). The chapters have been written authoritatively by internationally recognized contributors. A few illustrations in color have been added, but inconveniently placed at the beginning of each volume. Occasionally subjects are found in the text that are not found in the generally extensive index.
Assessment: This new edition has kept pace with new advances and is very welcome. It defines one of the three categories of texts used by endocrinologists, the others being one-volume surveys of endocrinology (e.g., Felig et al.'s Endocrinology and Metabolism, 3rd Edition (McGraw-Hill, 1995)) and focused surveys of specific endocrine systems (e.g., Braverman et al.'s Werner and Ingbar's The Thyroid: A Fundamental and Clinical Text), 8th Edition (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2000)). Although endocrinologists will develop their own styles as to when they will use each source, there is no question that this set is an important contribution, one that establishes the standard for the others.
