Clearly written and ably illustrated ... a highly readable introduction to immunoparasitology.' Richard Locksley, Immunology Today 'This book will, I am confident, remain at the very top of the 'hit parade' of immunoparasitology textbooks and it is a must on the bookshelf of all those interested in parasitology, immunology or infectious diseases.'
