Description

Man meets Microbes: An Introduction to Medical Microbiology is concerned with the infective aspects of disease in man. It considers the role of organisms in causing disease and also with the response to, and defense of man against these organisms.

The book begins with a general introduction, providing a survey of the history of microbiology and a classification of micro-organisms and parasites capable of causing disease in man. Subsequent chapters are devoted to discussions on such topics as host-parasite relationships, parasites, bacteria and viruses, and organ systems and how they get infected with disease. The final chapter covers certain topics such as infection during pregnancy, fever, and nursing being a hazardous occupation.

Microbiologists and those in the medical profession will find the book very useful.
