Proceedings of the 5th International Symposium on the Molecular Genetics of Plant-Microbe Interactions; Interlaken, Switzerland, September 9-14, 1990
This is an excellent book providing both overviews and current research details. It covers the increasingly broad field of the molecular genetics of plant-microbe interactions in a comprehensive manner. I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in the field.
