Abstract

This splendid volume is an outgrowth of an earlier work by Huddleson, published in 1934, entitled "Brucella Infections in Animals and Man." The previous book was restricted largely to methods of laboratory diagnosis. The present volume, about three times larger than the earlier book, deals extensively with the clinical aspects of brucellosis (undulant fever) and brings down to date the accumulated information on the pathology, bacteriology and serology of the disease in man and animals. The chapters dealing with the clinical aspects of brucellosis in the United States and brucellosis in Malta were contributed by Hardy, of Columbia University, and by Debono, of the Royal University of Malta.

The senior author and the contributing authors are recognized authorities in their respective fields.
