Infection and Immunity, third edition, describes the main causes of infection that our bodies have to battle against - from bacteria to viruses, fungi to protozoa - and explains the intricate and fascinating ways that our bodies respond to infection - from detection of these potentially dangerous organisms, to their ultimate elimination.

Presenting a fully-rounded, perfectly-balanced overview of the field, the book also explains how diseases spread, and what measures we can take to control this spread - from vaccination to increased awareness through public health initiatives.

With examples of infectious diseases from across the world, Infection and Immunity is perfect for biomedical science, bioscience and microbiology students who need to understand what causes infection, and how our immune systems respond.

Review:


UNEDITED UK REVIEW: "The text presented is of a very high quality, presented by authors who are passionate about the subject and how it is portrayed to their students in a manner that will inspire!"--Dr Andrew Foey, School of Biological Sciences, University of Plymouth


UNEDITED UK REVIEW: "I think the book is quite unique in its breadth and integrated topic."--Dr John Greenman, Biological Sciences, The University of Hull


UNEDITED UK REVIEW: "As the field of immunology becomes more and more specialized, here is a textbook that offers a fresh overlook of host-pathogen interactions for the student. The general yet thorough text is directed at students with minimal college biology background and would be appropriate for freshmen and sophomore students."--Professor Gary Splitter, Department of Animal Health and Biomedical Sciences, University of Wisconsin-Madison


"Few books are available that are suitable for a course that integrates microbiology and immunology, but this one succeeds in explaining the immune system and its role in host defense very well. It uses examples of infectious diseases from around the world to describe mechanisms of immune respones. Immunology is a rapidly advancing discipline and this third edition is a welcome update."--Doody's
