To serve and to protect: that is the charge to our immune system. Equipped with an impressive array of genetic strategies and chemical and cellular weapons, it does just that - most of the time. Allergy, cancer, organ transplantation, AIDS, vaccines - these too are the province of our immune systems. In In Defense of Self, William Clark invites you on a whirlwind tour of your immune system. Along the way, he introduces some of most important medical advances and challenges of the past hundred years.
