Review:

Praise for the previous edition: "This book should be in every medical library..."--POSTGRADUATE MEDICAL JOURNAL "This is an outstanding book of high scholarship of much interest to immunologists, microbiologists, pathologists and all those concerned with infectious diseases."--MOLECULAR MEDICINE TODAY "A splendidly imaginative book which will become a trusty companion for many of us."--THE LANCET "A short but comprehensive description of the mechanisms of infectious disease in an eminently readable form suitable for undergraduates in medicine, veterinary medicine and microbiology. An excellent book which should be read by teachers, students and research workers."--NEW SCIENTIST "In bringing this material together clearly, in one short thoughtful volume, Professor Mims offers the student a chance to acquire a sound appreciation of the infectious process."--BRITISH MEDICAL JOURNAL "It remains excellent value for money and will I am sure long continue to be a standard text."--JOURNAL OF MEDICAL MICROBIOLOGY "Clear, well-written text including tables, and impressive schematic drawings." --Experimental Pathology
