About this book

Introduction

This book on hemorrhagic diseases and thrombosis brings the reader up to date with the progress that has been made in one of the rapidly expanding fields in medicine. Although many of the topics discussed are in fact not of recent vintage they have again become a center of interest. They are related to the major changes arising from the new methods of diagnosis that have become available in the clinical laboratory and which are now being applied with greater precision and on a larger scale. The considerable progress that has been made in treatment, particularly of the almost ubiquitous thrombotic disorders, is also described. Professor F. R. Matthias has his roots in a well-established hematolog­ ical center. He has attempted to integrate both preclinical and clinical studies in a way that provides a logical and easily understood account of hemostasis and thrombosis, two distinct but interwoven areas of hematology; and he has succeeded. Moreover, he has written the book in a style which is easily comprehensible. Remembering that history does not repeat itself but that historians do, he has freed himself from the fetters of lengthy historial material and tedious repetition and has produced for his readers an enlightening, articulate, and well illus­ trated book.
