I believe there is another good reason for this book. I think it will provide some direction in this growing -- sometimes awkwardly growing � field, because it is a legitimate attempt to synthesize our knowledge on antiviral compounds at several levels of organization, including their modes of action, and their activities both in animal infections and clinical medicine.
