It is with pleasure and excitement that we can announce the publication of the ESP History Book:

"Minds, Microscopes and Molecules: The First Fifty Years of the European Society of Pathology" by Andrew Wilson

About the book: 
The European Society of Pathology (ESP) was created in 1964 by a small group of eminent practitioners, notably the Belgian Pierre Dustin and the Italian Alfonso Giordano. This book follows the ESP’s evolution from a ‘friendship group’—whose finances were kept in a shoebox by successive Treasurers’ wives—to a professional organization with head-quarters in Brussels, a respected journal (Virchows Archiv), and educational activities reaching hundreds of pathologists each year. Set against a backdrop of political and social change (e.g. the evolution of the European Union, the fall of the Iron Curtain), and the advance of science and practice, the book focuses on the people and events that helped make the ESP what it is today: the face of European Pathology.

The book will be available for purchase at the 28th ESP Congress in Cologne, Germany between 25-29 September 2016.

You can also order a copy of the book by e-mail at info@esp-pathology.org

We hope you will enjoy reading it!
