From the Back Cover:

This book is unique in dealing with the history of transplantation immunology kaleidoscopically, and is written by an author with an exceptional knowledge of the topic, and one of the founding fathers of the field.
Those entering the field of transplantation are frequently unaware of the topic's historical roots and even of the background on which modern discoveries involving, for example, tolerance, histocompatibility antigens and xenotransplantation are bases. Many of the early events are very colorful, and others surprising. This beautifully crafted account not only provides enjoyment but, equally importantly, helps to place the work of contemporary scientists into its proper context. As such this book will form fascinating reading for immunologists at all stages in their career, from student to teacher and researcher, for physicians, surgeons, and for all those with real interest in science, and how vital discoveries were actually made.
Although transplantation immunology has made some notable conceptual contributions to the development of immunological theory, it is essentially a science that, even from the earliest years, has flourished because of the hope of its clinical application. Written by Leslie Brent, and with a forward by Ray Owen, this book provides a fascinating account of how tissue and organ transplantation has become one of the most successful branches of late twentieth century medicine.
