This book will help students and other to develop a firm grasp of the principles underlying the use of antimicrobial drugs, while encouraging responsible prescription of these often misused therapeutic tools.

Many chapters have been rewritten to include a wealth of new material, and handsome illustrations throughout help to clarify the text. The contributors are R.G. Finch, D. Greenwood, P. Ispahani Dip Bact, M.J. Lewis, and R.C.B. Slack.
