    Book Summary

    An examination of persistent bacterial infections in the light of ecological and evolutionary principles. • Focuses on the principles of parasitism and commensalism and our ability to distinguish the two states. • Explores the ways in which persistent infections differ from acute, self-limiting bacterial infections and how both differ from the nonpathogenic commensal state. • Addresses coevolution, host adaptation, natural selection, and other fundamental biological principles. • Serves as a resource for investigators and advanced students in the field of bacterial pathogenesis.
