Summary: This timely Third Edition of Asthma, Basic Mechanisms and Clinical Management edited by Barnes, Rodger and Thomson, has undergone radical revision and includes several new chapters. It brings together all the recent information on basic mechanisms of asthma and also covers in depth clinical aspects and therapy. This integrated approach should appeal to researchers and also clinicians who need to keep abreast of recent developments in this rapidly expanding field.
