In recent years, progress in the field of virology has advanced at an unprecedented rate. Issues such as AIDS have brought the subject firmly into the public domain and its study is no longer confined solely to specialist groups. The Encyclopedia of Virology is the largest single reference source of current virological knowledge. It is also the first to bring together all aspects of the subject for a wide variety of readers. Unique in its use of concise 'mini-review' articles, the material covers biological, molecular, and medical topics concerning viruses in animals, plants, bacteria, and insects.
More general articles focus on the effects of viruses on the immune system, the role of viruses in disease, oncology, gene therapy, and evolution, plus a wide range of related topics.
Drawing on the latest research, the editors have produced the definitive source for both specialist and general readers. Easy-to-use and meticulously organized, the Encyclopedia of Virology clarifies and illuminates one of the most complex areas of contemporary study. It will prove an invaluable addition to libraries, universities, medical and nursing schools, and research institutions around the world.
The Second Edition has been thoroughly updated with approximately 40 new articles. This edition includes more illustrations and color plates in each volume.

Praise for the First Edition:
"No other source that I am aware of allows the reader to look up, in alphabetical organization, virtually any virus of animals, plants, or bacteria." (American Society For Microbiology News)
"For a long time there has been a gap in the virological literature...the Encyclopedia of Virology aims to fill this gap and does so admirably." (The Times Higher Education Supplement)
"I consider this encyclopedia to be a valuable addition to my own virology library. I believe the readership which will most benefit by this work includes basic scientists in virology and microbiology. If clinicians, students, and others need access to this information, they will find it on the shelves of libraries which choose to house this compilation, and I hope that many libraries will make that choice." (Harley A. Rotbart, University of Colorado School of Medicine, in ASM News)
"Recent advances in virological research have been extraordinary, but the finding of new strains has also kept abreast of them. In June, 1993, a new strain of hantaviru was uncovered in the four-corners area of the U.S. (14 states were found to have had cases in the latest count), leading virologists to scramble to isolate the virus. This was accomplished in November of the same year, when it was found in the excreta of deer mice. This and many other virus results are reported in the just-published Encyclopedia of Virology. Over 250 articles examine all phases of animal, insect, plant, and bacteriophage viruses....The Encyclopedia of Virology is recommended for reference departments of academic, medical, and corporate libraries." (Medical Libraries Discussion Group On Internet)
"...The Encyclopedia would be a valuable addition to the reference libraries of medical schools, veterinary schools, graduate schools, and hospitals." (New England Journal Of Medicine)
"This major overview of the field of virology seems to have no precedent. This is a reference book for any library that serves the basic or clinical science..." (Elizabeth A. Wood in Medical Reference Services Quarterly)
"The Encyclopedia exhibits thoughtful, convenient organization." (Choice)
