This book contains an up-to-date, authoritative discussion of blood groups and their inheritance. In addition to ABO groups, the newer blood groups such as MN, P, Rh, Lutheran, Kell, Lewis, and Duffy are reviewed, and methods for identification of blood group antibodies are described. The significance of blood groups in hemolytic diseases and blood transfusions, and the contributions of blood group investigations to problems of parentage and identity are reported. The discussion is supplemented with numerous tables and charts. Each chapter concludes with a list of references, and both an authors' index and a subject index are included at the end of the book. This volume should be a useful reference for physicians, geneticists, anthropologists, members of the legal profession, and all others interested in blood group research and its practical application.
