`Review from previous edition The text presented is of a very high quality, presented by authors who are passionate about the subject and how it is portrayed to their students in a manner that will inspire! ' Dr Andrew Foey, School of Biological Sciences, University of Plymouth `I think the book is quite unique in its breadth and integrated topic.' Dr John Greenman, Biological Sciences, The University of Hull `As the field of immunology becomes more and more specialized, here is a textbook that offers a fresh overlook of host-pathogen interactions for the student. The general yet thorough text is directed at students with minimal college biology background and would be appropriate for freshmen and sophomore students. ' Professor Gary Splitter, Department of Animal Health and Biomedical Sciences, University of Wisconsin-Madison `Few books are available that are suitable for a course that integrates microbiology and immunology, but this one succeeds in explaining the immune system and its role in host defense very well. Immunology is a rapidly advancing discipline and this third edition is a welcome update.' Doodys reviews
