The eighth edition of Inderbir Singh's Textbook of Human Histology has been fully revised to provide undergraduate medical students with the most recent developments in the field. The book begins with a colour atlas presenting more than 80 slides providing an overview of histology and a quick revision aid. The following chapters discuss the histology of different parts of the body. Each topic has been fully updated and the new edition includes a new chapter on light microbiology and tissue preparation to help students learn the basics of histology. Histological plates have been added to each section to aid recognition of salient features seen under the microscope. All figures have been redrawn and many new illustrations have been added, as well as clinical and pathological correlations.
