The aim of this text is to present the fundamental principles of med ogy to students of science and medicine. It is also hoped that it will: useful resource for teachers of virology, specialists in infectious dise postgraduate students. The pace of change in the eight years since f ous edition has been so great that the book has necessarily been sub rewritten and expanded. The essential plan of previous editions retained, but our account of the molecular biology of viral infection detailed than in the third edition. Part I of the book presents an ovi the principles of animal virology, while Part U, entitled Viruses of Hu> arranged by virus family, is oriented toward the needs of medical and clinicians. In order to focus on concepts, mechanisms, and ba minutiae have been omitted except where necessary to understand a tant phenomenon. Much of the factual material is consolidated into tr figures. Statements have not been individually supported by refei research papers, but selective lists of recent authoritative books and are provided at the end of each chapter to simplify the reader's entry scientific literature.
