This work provides a comprehensive, up-to-date description of the mechanisms of microbial infection and the pathogenesis of infectious disease. Presented in a clear, accessible style, it deals in an integrated manner with the spectrum of microorganisms, bringing together molecular biology, pathology, and immunology to explain the mechanisms for spread, immune response, and recovery.
Praise for the previous editions: "This is an outstanding book of high scholarship of much interest to immunologists, microbiologists, pathologists and all those concerned with infectious diseases."
