The ground-breaking introduction to immunology written by Janis Kuby was the first textbook for the course that was actually written with the intention of serving as a textbook. It was unlike any other textbook because it combined a strong emphasis on experimentation with extensive pedagogical features to assist college students in understanding fundamental ideas.
The eighth edition of Kuby's Immunology, now available in a thoroughly revised and updated new edition, continues to be the only undergraduate introduction to immunology text written by instructors of the subject. In keeping with the Kuby tradition, authors Jenni Punt, Patricia Jones, Sharon Stranford, and Judy Owen present the most up-to-date topics in an experimental setting. They convey the excitement of scientific discovery and highlight great and important advances. However, they do so while keeping the focus on the big picture of the study of immune response, and they do so while providing unsurpassed pedagogical support for first-time and beginning students.
As contributors to the textbook, Punt, Jones, Stranford, and Owen bring a vast array of research and teaching experiences to the table, in addition to a determination to carry on the pedagogically-driven and experiment-based approach that Janis Kuby pioneered. They addressed topics that science or medical students have the most trouble grasping, and they reminded undergraduate students continually where the topic at hand fits in the study of immunology as a whole. This was done for the 8th edition, and they worked chapter by chapter to streamline the coverage.
