Once again, this distinguished team of 78 experts in immunology under the direction of William Paul has achieved success. They have created the fourth edition of their now renowned book, displaying most of contemporary, international immunology. Several of the authors are European (including the British Isles), and one is Japanese. The first edition, published 15 years ago, was half this size. This new edition has many valuable, even fresh, insights especially concerning cytokines, genetics, and much more about the structure of membranes and molecules.
