Summary

This fully revised new edition provides a balanced, up-to-date and clinically relevant introduction to microbiology. This leading text is distinguished by an innovative use of colour graphics and tables and a "student-friendly" format. It is comprehensive in approach - giving appropriate weighting and balance to bacteriology, virology, mycology, and parasitology - yet concise in presentation. The book focuses at all times on the essential, medically important information the student needs to know. Organisationally, the text takes a traditional "taxanomic" (vs. an integrated) approach to the subject matter. Also included is a separate section on Immunology (by Ken Rosenthal) that is sufficient to serve as a text for medical school immunology courses.
