About this book

The second edition of this important and best-selling textbook brings together the recent advances in our understanding of how bacteria cause disease. New research has changed the way scientists view host-bacterium interactions - not included in previous basic textbooks. The interactions involve immunology, cell biology, human and bacterial physiology, molecular biology and genetics. The six introductory chapters provide the scientific background necessary for exploring the bacterial diseases covered in the book. Through studying the bacteria and diseases presented, students gain extensive knowledge of host-parasite interactions and examine a range of interesting epidemiological and therapeutic problems.


The Host-Parasite Interaction; Paradigms of Bacterium-Host Interactions; Future Challenges. Appendix 1: Cell Surface Structures of Bacteria. Appendix 2: Phylogenetic Diversity of Pathogenic Bacteria. Appendix 3: Nucleic Acid-Based Detection Systems. Appendix 4: Answers to End-of-Chapter Questions.
