Immunology: A Short Course performs this function admirably, taking advantage of the authors' breadth of knowledge and a contemporary molecular and cellular view of immunology... Immunology: A Short Course complements the broad coverage of immunology as a biological discipline with a full set of clear and attractive illustrations of cellular and molecular details of the immune system. [... Immunology: A Short Course] offers a valuable balance between classic and contemporary, academic and clinical, and will serve many students, and their teachers well." - David H.
