The Distribution of the Human Blood Groups and Other Polymorphisms

The Distribution of the Human Blood Groups and Other Polymorphisms In publishing this monumental reference, Oxford Press and Professor Mourant and his associates have saved many researchers countless hours of literature search. There are 661 pages of tabulated data and 68 pages of bibliography, not including the republication of the complete monograph The ABO Blood Groups by the same authors, first published by Blackwell's in 1958. Most readers will head first for Mourant's pithy summaries of all these numbers. Superb on blood groups, competent on proteins and enzymes, Mourant puts isolated and featureless population studies into a working framework. There is a separate chapter for each major blood group system and protein polymorphism, followed by chapters considering the blood group distributions in different geographic and population categories. Red cell blood groups are the major focus, especially ABO and Rh; haptoglobulins, transferrins, lipoproteins, and enzyme systems occupy a decidedly secondary position.
