Our world is awash with germs, viruses, and bacteria-tiny but powerful invaders that can make us sick. Fortunately, the human immune system mounts an amazing defense against all these attackers. Immunology will introduce you to the many strategies our bodies use to protect us, as well as the many things that can go wrong. The six-volume set, The Science of the Human Body, provides readers with all the information they need to understand how we function. Topics include our vital bodily systems, organ transplants, genetic modifications, common and exotic illnesses, and the fight against deadly pandemics. Taken together, the set provides a comprehensive foundation of knowledge for students of human biology. Book jacket.
