On the 8th September, the British Medical Association hosted their annual Book Awards at their head office in Tavistock Square, London. Several of the medical editorial and marketing team attended along with their authors. We were thrilled to have an impressive total of 14 highly commended books across many subject areas including anesthesia, mental health, pediatrics, haematology, neurology, oncology, pathology and obstetrics and gynecology.

Scooping first prize in the Pathology section, Diagnostic Histochemistry by Mark Wick beat off stiff and established competition including Ioachim’s Lymph Node Pathology, 4th edition and Muir’s Textbook of Pathology, 14th edition. This beautifully illustrated book was the first monograph to be published on histochemistry in 15 years and has been recognised for its huge contribution to the world of medicine:

“In the world of molecular biology, gene arrays, nanotechnology, automated staining and novel imaging systems, it is heart-warming to see the appearance of a book celebrating the survival of diagnostic staining techniques in histochemistry. It deserves a place in every pathology laboratory and medical library. There are few scientific disciplines where art, aesthetics and science are so intimately combined or have such impact despite their longevity.” Acta Histochemica

Take a look at all fourteen of our Highly Commended titles:

    As if the success of the large number of nominees and one overall winner wasn’t enough, Cambridge was also credited, on the night, with a winner we knew nothing about – Essentials of Toxicology, which turns out to be a Health Protection Agency title. They say all publicity is good publicity!
