In concise, engagingly lucid prose, Fenner and White survey general virology, a complex and rapidly evolving field. Part I provides the principles of basic animal biology, and briefly examines the effects of viruses on cells, tissues, the whole organism, and groups of people. The second part of the book surveys the major families of human viruses, exploring the relationship between disease and the properties of its causative agent. Employing a clear and simple style the text renders complex problems comprehensible, accompanied by relevant high-quality diagrams and illustrations. The authors offer a synthesis of more controversial points of view on given topics, and each chapter is followed by a recapitulation summary. The book is both a balanced introductory textbook for students of this complicated subject, and an extensive reference for basic scientists, research diagnosticians, physicians and epidemiologists.
