Any professional concerned with immunology will be interested in this book dedicated to the memory of Milan Hasek, former director of the Prague Institute of Experimental Biology and Genetics. Prof. Hasek was a congenial scientist and most amiable person - a personal friend of almost all leading immunologists around the world. He was displaced from his post of director in 1970, yet had a lasting impact upon his students and the group known as the Prague School of Immunogenetics. The topics covered in the contributions range from tolerance, immune network, and immunogenetics to the immunology of bacterial and viral infections. They are written by 27 of Prof. Hasek's former co-workers who emigrated to western countries around or after 1968 and became well-known and distinguished scientists in the field. The papers include their personal reflections of the Prague Institute, their impressions upon arriving abroad and their interesting experimental work since then. The book also provides a complete bibliography of their publications after leaving Czechoslovakia.
