This book is a centennial volume celebrating the enormous progress made in hematology in the 20th century. It is edited by Marshall Lichtman, a distinguished senior hematologist, past president of the American Society of Hematology, and co-editor of the leading text in the field.
Hematology is a compendium, with commentaries, of the most important papers published in the field from 1900-1999. The book will be useful for reference--many of the older papers can no longer be found in most libraries, yet are still referred to in current publications, especially review articles--as well as teaching.
The Editor and a team of associate editors have included the most important papers covering eight categories: anemia; phagocytic cells; platelets; coagulation and thrombosis; lymphocytes and immune disorders; transfusion medicine; hematologic malignancies and therapeutics; and laboratory developments. Each paper is accompanied by a 1-2 page commentary explaining its impact, and references to the developments that resulted.


Hematologists, pediatric and adult hematologists, oncologists, transfusion medicine MDs, hematopathologists, internists, fellows and residents, molecular biologists and immunologists interested in the structure and function of blood cells, and geneticists.

Quotes and reviews

"Great care has been shown by Lichtman and his colleagues. They should be commended for assembling these papers, which reflect closely so many of the important milestones in this fascinating discipline. A book to treasure and browse through to relieve the tensions of the working day." (J.Parker, British Journal of Haematology, 2001)

"This book...merits the attention of all hematologists who want to know the origin of their speciality."
