This second edition of a well received textbook includes major revisions in certain chapters. There is also further discussion on clinically important conditions, and some of the more esoteric section on microbiology have been printed in italics so that the book can be read either at a general level, by reading the italicised material, or as a more advanced text. The bright, bold format, from the first edition has been kept, but has been given a more sophisticated and up-to-date look. Richly illustrated with around 130 line drawings and photographs, Human Virology provides a complete review of this rapidly expanding field of biology for medical, dental and microbiology students. Leslie Collier is as freelance medical editor and writer and was formerly Professor of Virology at the Royal London Hospital. John Oxford is the current holder of this position. Reviews of the first edition 'Collier and Oxford are to be congratulated on producing a textbook for undergraduates which is refreshing in its ability to make the subject interesting and clinically relevant in a format that is both easy and enjoyable to read.' British Journal of Hospital Medicine 'excellent student text which combines scholarship with easy to remember diagrams and memory aides.' Aslib Book Guide 'The book is very well illustrated and the only adjective for the many electronmicrographs is "superb".' J Med Microbiol 'It is a pleasure to recommend Human Virology as a textbook for basic clinical virology.' International Antiviral News.

About the Author:

John Oxford, Professor of Virology, St. Bartholomew's and the Royal London School of Medicine and Dentistry.

Review:

"Primarily a textbook for the medical, dental and microbiology undergraduate student, Human Virology aims to provide a sound grounding in the fundamentals of this fascinating and rapidly developing subspeciality. The authors are virologists with distinguished scientific pedigrees and extensive experience in teaching, and they write in a lively and interesting style."..."Passing exams remains the major academic obsession, and any text that offers information in a readable and easily memorised style should be welcomed. Collier and Oxford's book does this, and presents material in such a stimulating fashion that is should also attract bright students into this sphere of medicine." Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine

"...with its short chaptures and good diagrams, this book will be well suited for those who want a basic overview of the subjects surrounding virology. Furthermore, it is very up-to-date and well structured for those who need a last minute cramming in before the exams!" GKT Gazette
