Takes a thoroughly modern and clinically relevant approach to microbiology, discussing the organ systems in turn and addressing the diseases caused by invading microbes within each. The book has four main sections in which the first sections describe infectious diseases in terms of conflict between the host and the parasite. The third section is a full, factual, clinically-based account on infectious diseases with the necessary attention to core medical microbiology, while the fourth section is devoted to prevention and treatment, including a chapter on epidemiology.
