Review quote

From Previous Edition:
"This book successfully links basic science with clinical medicine, providing a framework within which to understand this complex disease. As Lahita states in the introduction, 'The history of discovery is now in the log phase of growth.' The third edition of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus conveys the excitement and the breadth of this dynamic field. This volume will be an excellent resource for basic and clinical scientists, as well as for the students of imunology and rheumatology. The chapters are well-referenced and can be read independently- as befits a reference book."
-Jane E. Salmon, Weill Medical College, Cornell University, New York, USA (March 2000)
