1. “Immunity to Blood Parasites of Animals and Man (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology)” by Louis Miller
2. “Parasites: Immunity And Pathology: The Consequences Of Parasitic Infections In Mammals” by J M Behnke
3. “Immunity to Parasites: How Parasite Infections are Controlled” by Derek Wakelin

“Immunity to Parasites: How Parasite Infections are Controlled” Book Review: This book provides an account of how hosts can control parasites through immune responses and of how parasites can evade immunity. It includes introduction to parasitology, immunobiology, blood sucking insects, the biology of coccidia, protozoa and other protists, and introduction to animal parasitology.

4. “Immunity to Parasites: How Parasitic Infections are Controlled” by Derek Wakelin

“Immunity to Parasites: How Parasitic Infections are Controlled” Book Review: This book is useful for undergraduates and postgraduates with interests in either parasitology or immunology and provides introductory sections on these topics. It also provides fascinating examples of evolutionary ‘arms-races’ in which the immune system plays a key role. The contents included in this book are parasites and parasitism, the immune response, experimental immunoparasitology, intracellular protozoa, african trypanosomes, schistosomes etc.

5. “Microbial Pathogenesis: Infection and Immunity (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology)” by Uday Kishore and Annapurna Nayak

“Microbial Pathogenesis: Infection and Immunity (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology)” Book Review: This book shows dissecting mechanisms underlying viral immune evasion via exploiting the host complement system by vaccinia virus, and by modulating the type 1 interferon response by RNA viruses. It also shows how viroporins expressed by different families of viruses causing influenza A virus, SARS, hepatitis C and HIV interact with several cellular pathways. It focuses on fungal pathogenesis and immunity, starting with virulence and host factors that attain great importance in candidiasis and associated escape tricks of seriously opportunistic fungi. It also elaborates on the pathogenic mechanisms: first discussing A. fumigatus‑airway epithelium interaction, followed by fungal and host factors that are paramount in the development of allergic and invasive aspergillosis.

6. “Immunity to Animal Parasites” by E J L Soulsby
7. “Innate Immunity: Insect immune responses to virus and parasites” by Olle Terenius
8. “The Reticuloendothelial System in Health and Disease: Immunologic and Pathologic Aspects (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology)” by Herman Friedman and Mario R Escobar
9. “Invertebrate Immunity: Mechanisms of Invertebrate Vector-parasite Relations” by Karl Maramorosch and Robert E Shope

“Invertebrate Immunity: Mechanisms of Invertebrate Vector-parasite Relations” Book Review: This book discusses the barrier imposed by the gut of invertebrates to invading parasites. It then centers on the role of invertebrate hemocytes and other phagocytic cells in immunity, as well as the humoral defense mechanisms of these organisms. It also includes parasite encapsulation in insects, role of melanin in host-parasite interaction, and use of host hormones by insect parasites to make the host environment favorable for their growth and development. This is useful for those interested in comparative immunology, in invertebrate immune responses, entomologists, protozoologists, physicians, veterinarians, ecologists, pathologists, research workers, science teachers, and graduate students.

10. “The Cellular Defence Reactions of Insects (Cambridge Monographs in Experimental Biology)” by George Salt

“The Cellular Defence Reactions of Insects (Cambridge Monographs in Experimental Biology)” Book Review: This book contains 2 main points included they are, the first aspect involves description of the reactions and of their effects on parasites. This part of the subject is basic to the biological control of insect pests, because a better understanding of cellular defence reactions could lead to improved methods of using insect parasites to human advantage. The second aspect involves analysis of the stimuli that evoke cellular reactions. It also discusses the efficiency and specificity of insect defence mechanisms and compares them with the immunity reactions of vertebrates.
