This presents an interesting and instructive discussion of the genesis of infectious diseases from the point of view of the symbiotic relations between the host—the patient—and the specific infectious agent. The common principles of the various manifestations as distinct diseases of this symbiosis under different conditions are clearly set forth. Reading the book will serve to clarify and enlarge the understanding of the infectious diseases because, so to speak, it bridges the gaps between microbiology, immunology and these diseases as usually presented in the medical curriculum.
