Developed from a meticulous search of works from the last 40 years, Classics in Rhinology culls premier articles from rhinologic literature into a single, convenient text. Editors Michael S. Benninger and Marvin P. Fried have identified the key articles that helped shape the field of rhinology and have invited commentary from contemporary practitioners who discuss how these articles have impacted both the field and patient care.

Classics in Rhinology is an effective resource well-suited for anyone who wants to review the history of rhinology for patient care, education, or just for enjoyment.

From the Introduction:

"We have done our best to identify the critical articles that have shaped the face of rhinology and sinusology. We have also tried to do this in a way that was objective and transparent. Finally, we hope that Classics in Rhinology will serve as a simple and ready resource for anyone who wants to review the history of rhinology for patient care, education, or just for pure enjoyment."

Michael S. Benninger and Marvin P. Fried


  • Claire Hopkins FRCS ORL-HNS, Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital, London, Journal of Laryngology and Otology (May 2015):
    "I'd like to start by saying that the chapter commentary by Hopkins is one of the best written I have come across in my history of reviewing for the JLO – but then perhaps I might be a little biased...

    "Classics" sets out to compile the key articles in rhinology from the 30 or so years, into one single volume... Each section has a preceding commentary, aiming to place the articles into the context of clinical practice and research, and, genuinely for my section, these were the papers that formed the basis of my research career in outcomes, and it was a pleasure to be able to reflect on them.

    For me, having read so many of these articles in the past, it is a great pleasure to have them combined into a single volume..."
