    Default Understanding quote

    Hi
    The following sentence is quoted from a medicine book: "High risk pregnancy management options"
    This new international textbook in obstetrics will, we believe, be of major value to all practicing clinicians, be they trainees or established in practice.
    I don't understand the part in bold as well as it's meaning in the sentence. Please explain the structure to me and provide more examples.
    Thank you
    PS: I apologize if my quoting this sentence from the book may upset the very respective authors as well as if it may violate the "Terms of use" of this website.

    It's an example of the subjunctive. Type "subjunctive" into the search box, you will find many helpful posts on the subject.
