Published: 5th Edition (June 21, 2001)
Of previous editions: "Treats the subject of immunology with freshness and vigor and enthusiasm ... Abundantly illustrated... As up to date as a textbook can be ... clearly written and complete." New England Journal of Medicine "One of the best general immunology textbooks available... This book clearly sets a new standard, and should not be missed by anyone interested in the subject."
The central thesis of this book is that the immune system exists to protect the host from infection and that its evolutionary history was shaped by this challenge. Other aspects of immunology (for example allergy, graft rejection etc) are variations on the basic protective function. The first part of the book summarises the basic immunological concepts and introduces the main 'players'. The middle three parts deal with main aspects of adaptive immunity. The last part integrates the material at the level of the complete organism in both health and disease.
