The editors have compiled a series of articles written by carefully selected experts in the fields of microbiology, molecular pathogenesis, and clinical medicine on hemolytic and nonhemolytic streptococci, Streptococcus pneumoniae, and enterococci. The contributors clearly have an intimate knowledge of all aspects of the topics they discuss. Most of the articles begin with an interesting historical review of significant contributions that provide the basis for our current understanding. Chapters are extensively referenced and should be particularly valuable for the serious reader. Tables and diagrams contribute significantly to the presentations.
