The major areas of immunology are approached from a somewhat unique direction. This book is an atlas with over 300 illustrations, focusing upon appropriate highlights of immunopathology and immunobiology. Included are a wide gamut of illustrations: tissue pathology, immunofluorescence, autoradiographs, electromicroscopy, immunoelectrophoresis, and whole animal and human photographs.

This book is very well organized. There are 23 sections, each dealing with an important segment of immunology. Among the topics are antigens, antibodies, phagocytosis, lymphocytes, nature of the immune response, various types of hypersensitivity reactions, and autoimmune reactions. Each section is introduced with a succinct discussion of the pertinent state of knowledge. This is followed by the illustrations, well selected for content and all of high photographic quality.

This book should serve as a useful reference for teachers and students of immunology and as a most helpful source of information for physicians less familiar with the complexities of this rapidly proliferating
