"This excellent and timely book contains a well-balanced compilation of 15 chapters by leading experts on all aspects of research on rabies virus. ...should be essential reading for all those interested in rabies and its control. It is highly recommended." - Brian W.J. Mahy for VIRUS RESEARCH (2005) "The strength of this book lies in the multi-disciplinary contributions of experts in medicine, pathology, virology, immunology, epidemiology and veterinary medicine. It will be a useful collection for medical and veterinary clinicians, public health workers and research scientists involved in the diagnosis and prevention of rabies." -BRAIN (2004) "Rabies is a welcome summary of new discoveries, methods and techniques...this is a valuable view if rabies as seen from North America rather than a global survey"-MICROBIOLOGY TODAY (February 2003) "Those interested in infectious diseases and international health will obviously be pleased by Rabies, but I think others with broad biological interest will also enjoy it"-RICHARD T. JOHNSON MD, BALTIMORE (2003) "...15 authors, all of whom are highly respected researchers in their fields... all chapters contain well-selected references... excellent book." ¿CLINICAL INFECTIOUS DISEASES (January 2003)
