In a concise, smoothly reading text Rupert Billingham and Willys Silvers recapitulate and highlight the far-reaching progress in the field of transplantation immunity. Since his collaboration with Sir Peter Medawar in elucidating the basic mechanisms of immunological tolerance, the senior author has been one of the leading investigators in this field.
