Book Review Arch Virol (2005) 150: 2181–2182 DOI 10.1007/s00705-005-0608-8 Y. Kawaoka, (ed.): Options for the Control of Influenza V. Elsevier Interna- tional Congress Series 1263, 850pp, hardcover, Elsevier Publ. Co., Amsterdam 2004. IBSN: 0-444-51639-5. 174.00; $257.00 257.00 This weighty volume contains the Proceedings of the International Conference on Options for the control of Influenza V, held in Okinawa, Japan, October 7–11, 2003. I attended the first of this series of conferences which was held in Keystone, Colorado in 1985, since when the field has expanded enormously. Back in 1985 we were somewhat obsessed with working out the details of influenza virus replication. So it is interesting that only 3 of the approximately 200 contributions to this volume come under the heading of “replication”, whereas there are 36 contributions in the section titled vaccines, and 45 headed “Epidemiology/Diagnosis”. Curiously the book contributions, like the meeting itself, are divided into “Plenary Ses- sions”, “Oral Presentations” and “Posters”, which means that the reader interested in influenza immunology, for example, must visit three different parts of the book to explore this subject. Most contributions, like papers in a journal, are divided into the sections “Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion”, but there are occasional Archives of Virology Springer Journals
