As in most medical specialties, haematology saw great change since this book was first published in 1998. We now have a greater understanding of the molecular biology of many diseases, malignant and non-malignant. The new knowledge has helped us develop more sensitive assays for many conditions, and taken to the clinic, with the engineering of new drugs, such as STI571 used in the treatment of chronic myeloid leukaemia, in the middle of the others. Like the first edition, the intention was to encompass all aspects of haematology but there is perhaps a greater emphasis on basic science than before. Readers note that the writing team is very similar to the first edition, which provides continuity of style.
