Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Cyril Abrahams, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: The book deals with the pathology, clinical evaluation, and legal aspects of occupational lung disease. This is the second edition of a book first published in 1988.
Purpose: The purpose is to separate areas of occupational lung disease that need more emphasis and to incorporate advances and controversies in thinking about the diseases that have surfaced in the last ten years. These are worthy objectives as new knowledge has become available about these conditions. In addition there has been a steady increase in the number of substances classified as occupational pulmonary carcinogens and this information is useful for clinicians, pathologists, and the public. The book meets the editors' objectives.
Audience: It is written for pathologists, pulmonologists, internists, and those individuals working in the field of occupational lung diseases. It is also of value to the legal profession. This is a multi-authored book. The editors and contributors are all very well known in the field.
Features: Illustrations are of high quality, but the book is over-illustrated. For instance, there are six photographs of dust macules. X-rays should be labeled to identify lesions, and lettering on photographs should be clearer. The book is heavily referenced, but in some chapters only 25 percent post-date the previous edition. Some tables appear ten pages prior to the relevant text. Overall appearance is excellent, but some pages are not numbered.
Assessment: This is a well-written, information-laden addition to the field of occupational lung diseases. Although there are many texts available in which information about occupational lung disease appears, this book is unique in dealing specifically with the subject. This is of particular value to pathologists and pulmonologists and others because the editors and contributors are experts and have produced the "final" word on the subject. The book should be on the shelves of all pathologists and pulmonologists as well as in all medical libraries and pathology departments. I am sure it will find its way into law libraries of those lawyers involved in suits related to occupational disease. A second edition is certainly justified to replace the first edition as so much new knowledge in the field has become available.
