Having opened the cover and read the first of the three main sections of this book, I was impressed with the genius of the editors in choosing Sir Macfarlane Burnet's chapter on recent advances in the study of cancer immunity to be the first chapter, not only of the section "Recent Advances in Medical Science" but also of the entire book. My interest in cancer immunity was renewed by the interesting presentation of the material relating to T-system cellular immunity and the tumour-specific transplantation antigen, B-system immunity, and the clinical applications of these immune systems.
