This is an excellent book that fills a definite void. Immunology and immunopathology have made tremendous progress in the last decade. The application of these sciences to ocular problems has become more and more important. The recent international symposium on immunology and immunopathology of the eye attests to this fact. This symposium was held in Strasbourg, France, in May 1974, and the transactions have now become available in print as Ocular Immune Responses (published by S Karger, Basel, Switzerland, 1976). The first modern treatise on ocular immunopathology was published by W. Böke in 1968.

The first chapters of this book deal with the general aspects of immune mechanisms and their applications to the eye. These chapters are precise and concise and will prove to be invaluable for the general ophthalmologist. They are easily read and will bring anybody up to the present status of the art in the various aspects
