Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-Flashy new covers, new forewords, a new series name, and rewritten introductions by Dr. C. Everett Koop are the most visible changes in these volumes that were published in 1989 as part of the "Encyclopedia of Health" series. Although nothing in the books indicates that they are revisions or second editions, the texts and black-and-white photos and drawings are basically the same as in the earlier titles except for some updated statistics. Internet addresses and a few titles have been added to the appended lists in the books. The Immune System adds a few sentences about new vaccines and how beta interferon is now being used. Both volumes cover their subjects adequately with emphasis on the history, but the changes are minimal.-Martha Gordon, formerly at South Salem Library, NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
