This work, which succeeds the author's “Infection and Resistance,” embodies the advances that have been made in the science of immunology since 1923, the date of publication of the older work. As the author states, this period has been “marked by advances which have fundamentally modified theory and have had a profound effect upon practical methods of diagnosis and therapy.” The new edition is divided into two sections, the first treating of general principles of infection and resistance and the second, of special problems of immunology with the consideration of individual infectious diseases.

Section I contains twenty-two chapters each replete with the most recent data concerning the subjects of which they treat. In this section are considered types of immunity, virulence of organisms, bacterial poisons, antigens, agglutination, precipitation, phagocytosis, hypersensitiveness, complement fixation and numerous other immunological subjects of importance, this portion of the book covering 486 pages.
