The number of physicians treating rheumatology has grown significantly but still falls short of reasonable numbers to treat the ever-growing population. Although it is heartening that today rheumatology is being taught in more and more medical schools, we still do not have a relevant and concise rheumatology textbook for the students, leaving already overburdened undergraduates and postgraduates to struggle with bulky rheumatology volumes. Rheumatology: Principles and Practice is the answer to this long-felt need. The book has 38 chapters with contributions from 60 academic authors from across three continents (Australia, Asia and Europe). It covers a range of topics within rheumatology and offers diagnostic and management options. It is comprehensively illustrated and contains algorithms and multiple choice questions. The simple, practical and direct approach of the book also makes it ideal not only for medical students but also for practitioners, orthopedicians, pediatricians, physiotherapists and nursing students. This textbook would also be of interest to researchers in the field and the pharmaceutical and health care industry for easy access to accurate and reliable information in the field of rheumatology. It would be a valuable asset to college, university and state libraries maintaining a good database in medical science.
