Summary

"The book is a tour de force. Such breadth is more often a team than a tandem effort and readers must admire the depth of scholarship involved. The benefit is an evenness of coverage and integration of subject matter, sometimes lacking in multi-author productions. Despite the vast subject area, the referencing (1992 touching on 1993) is reasonably contemporary. This is a book at a fair price to bring the reader up to speed with the research literature, to bring the concerned clinician to molecular virology, the molecular virologists to the medical problems which are becoming amenable to solution by molecular techniques and, not least, a reference book for undergraduates. Its production in Fenner's 80th birthday year is fitting tribute to the two of the pillars of Australian virology."
