Editorial Reviews

John A. Robinson
This third edition of a textbook on immunlogy is vastly improved by the addition of advanced immunological concepts. The book briefly touches on diseases caused by immunological perturbations. It provides a moderate, in-depth overview of immunological concepts, their biological necessity and the immunopathology caused by deficient or abnormal immune response. The book is aimed at medical students; I suspect it would serve as adequate background for graduate students in other biological sciences. This edition uses a worthwhile concept that has been a bit overdone. The book is overillustrated; however, this is a minor deficiency because most of the illustrations are very good and simplify many complex immunological concepts. This is one time where the authors' decision to possibly err on the side of a bit of overillustration was worthwhile. Another significant feature is that the authors resisted the temptation to overreference the text. This is especially dangerous in immunological textbooks because concepts change rapidly; most references are current reviews that serve students well. This is a vastly improved version of a text that is becoming a standard in many medical schools. A new edition is justified because the previous one became obsolete more rapidly than the usual immunological text. The authors have included many important novel concepts in well-demarcated chapters. There are minor problems with text organization; however, they are not fatal to overall effectiveness. The only other flaw, again not major, is the attempt by the authors to describe diseases caused by immunologic al perturbations. Although students will benefit by recognizing diseases that can occur when animmunology system is in disarray or abnormal, this is best left to a textbook on clinical immunopathology.

This is the fourth edition of a well recognized, classic textbook of immunology. It is authored and edited by recognized authorities in the field, primarily from the U.K. The text covers basic, mechanistic aspects of immunology. The purpose is to make the fascinating subject of immunology understandable to readers at the undergraduate, graduate, and clinical stages of their careers. Because immunology is a rapidly advancing field, this sort of text is essential to provide basic, background information. The book does indeed fulfill the stated objectives. The audience for this text would include both graduate and undergraduate students as well as trainees and clinicians in specialties such as allergy, immunology, hematology, and infectious diseases who require extensive knowledge of basic immunologic mechanisms. This book is an exceptional immunology text because its illustrations are appropriate, colorful, and lucid depictions of the main textual concepts. The references are current and pertinent. The index and table of contents are appropriate. A unique feature of this book is the colorful illustrations of basic immunologic mechanisms and concepts; they result in the attractive overall appearance of the book. Because immunology is a field in which knowledge is expanding exponentially, this new edition is clearly needed. The authors and editors have added two unique features to this edition. At the beginning of each chapter, there is a listing of the key concepts in the chapter, and at the end of each chapter there is a shaded box entitled ""critical thinking"" that poses questions that could be the basis for in-depth discussion. This is an excellent immunology text withoutstanding illustrations. Anyone studying immunology or related fields should have this book available.

An intermediate-level text for students in medicine and science, covering basic science as well as immunology in relation to histology and pathology. Features include color explanatory diagrams, key concepts, frequent paragraph headings, chapter summaries, critical thinking questions, and a glossary. This fifth edition contains revised material throughout to stay abreast of changes in the field over the past two years, with new sections on cytokines, natural killer cells, and intracellular signaling in B and T cells. Coverage of immunodeficiency has been split into two chapters. Supplements include an interactive CD-ROM, case studies, and illustrated outlines. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
