In medicine's history there exists no other example of such extensive cooperation and exchange of knowledge among scientists, surgeons, and physicians, as in the field of transplantation. International surgeons and other medical specialists contribute 19 chapters detailing the histories of several important areas of transplant medicine including organ donation and sharing; liver, kidney, pancreas, islet, intestinal, heart, heart valve, lung, skin, corneal, pediatric, and arm transplantation; pediatric solid organ; immunosuppressive drugs; infectious diseases in transplantation; and ethical issues. World Scientific distributes the text, which is edited by Hakim and Papalois (St. Mary's Hospital, London) and contains a foreword by Lady Jean Medawar.
