Hardbound. This new edition of Pathophysiology of Hypertension in the series of the volumes of the Handbook of Hypertension has been designed in an entirely different way to cope with the developments in the field that have occurred in the decade between 1987 and 1997. The two separate volumes of the previous edition have been joined in a single, though much thicker volume to epitomize the close connections between structural and functional aspects of hypertension, a concept that has marked progress in our understanding of the pathophysiology of hypertension in the last decade.As the first edition of Pathophysiology of Hypertension, this entirely new edition has been intended not as a digest of what has been learnt about hypertension, but a guide to what is being learnt, as is usual in science, through dispute and controversy.
