From the PublisherHighly Commended Title Award in Basic and Clinical Sciences in 2000 from the British Medical Association!
"This handsome set of four volumes is an ambitious work...(T)he majority of articles are cross-referenced to other articles. This plethora of indexing and referencing may appear confusing, but the Encyclopedia is in fact easy to use once the organization of the contents is appreciated. The striking thing about the contents of the work is the amount of applied microbiology it contains; there are extensive sections dealing with agricultural, food and industrial microbiology... There are useful articles on ecological issues and, interestingly, articles on careers in the field of microbiology and on legal and ethical issues. In addition, there are interesting articles on historical aspects of certain diseases that give a valuable perspective. The tables and figures are excellent throughout and the pictorial illustrations are of high quality... In summary, this work is, as has been stated, ambitious and largely achieves its target. It is a valuable reference work for all microbiologists."
