The clinical manifestations of delayed hypersensitivity are a daily occurrence to the practicing dermatologist. For the dermatologist who wishes to expand his knowledge of cellular mechanisms involved in these phenomena this book provides a remarkable source. Not only does it cover specific data of the great experiments and advances of the past century, and particularly of the last decade, but it also furnishes a conceptual approach to the entire field. Discussion of passive transfer, homograft rejection, immunological unresponsiveness, significance of lymphoid tissue, the role of macrophages, cellular immunity, and experimental autoimmune diseases are covered in great depth.
Reading is made more difficult by frequent reference to specific authors rather than use of a reference number alone. This does not, however, materially detract from a book with a wealth of compiled information.
