The first book to specifically cover the molecular biology of retroviruses. With contributions by some of the world leaders in the field, this book provides a detailed review of current knowledge. An extremely important area, which has come to the forefront of research activity, especially with the emergence of HIV-1. The text reviews the molecular basis for cell tropism, and the various novel and ingenious viral mechanisms implemented to maximise viral spread while avoiding elimination by the human immune response. An excellent text for medical and non-medical researchers of human retrivology, it also serves as an illuminating introduction to the subject for scientists active in other areas of biological research.

'copious references are given and one of the strengths of this book is in the provision of a gateway to the original published literature ... I found this book stimulating update on a huge field and discovered much information of which I was not previously aware.' Elizabeth A.B. McCruden, University of Glasgow, Immunology Today, Vol. 15, No. 4, 1994
'The book is introduced by an excellent chapter by Cullen himself on retrovirus history, taxonomy and replication ... all chapters are well written and ... well presented and well balanced ... very readable ... a valuable reference for student and teacher alike and I think that it will remain a topical source of information for several years to come.' Eddie Blair, Society for General Microbiology Quarterly, November 1994
