Detailed, authoritative surveys of pulmonary airways structure and airflow characteristics in relation to chronic obstructive lung disease, both early and late. Attention is also given to pathogenic considerations of alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, smoking, and air pollution. The surveys unfortunately are not well integrated into a coherent monograph, and this may account for the unclear title.
