Nine contributors have written seven chapters on specific aspects of immunology. The subjects considered are the role of macrophages, lymphoid cells, and eosinophils in immune responses; a consideration of immunologic tolerance; lymphocyte transformation; transplantation; and the role of the lung in the immunologic system. This is not a good review of recent developments in immunology, but rather a specific consideration of certain developments in current research in this field. The role of the complement system, for example, is not considered. Certain subjects, such as the chapter on the lung, have little relevance to a treatise on lymphoid cells and immunology. Many chapters suffer from lack
