In preparing this edition of his book 'clinical hypertension', the author gives the most attention to the most common problems. Essential hypertension, unlike the scanty attention given in many texts, takes up almost half of the book. This book covers every form of hypertension. For these mentioned only briefly, references are provided for more information. It includes the latest data, even if still unproved and available only in abstract form. That which is newest and seems most pertinent received extra coverage. It provides enough pathophysiology to base clinical judgement on sound reason. This book describes a few new areas, especially the recognition of hypertension in children and adolescence. It gives many references and it summarizes the pertinent literature in additional tables and diagrams.
