The intent of this volume is to furnish virologists and clinicians with a current summary of progress in certain areas of interest in medical virology. I enjoyed the book and thought that, in general, the authors had produced a lucid, eminently readable volume. High points for clinicians should be the chapters on herpes simplex, rubella, and clinical uses of human immunoglobulin in virus infections. Although the occurrence of disease in humans was limited, the description of the Marburg virus is definitive and records an epidemiological detective story, along with skilled virology and astute clinical observations.
