This is a compendium of available information on protozoa for the use of physicians and the public in general. While not quite up, either in scope or in handling, to the standard set by Minchen's classic, it presents in condensed and readable form a mass of information on a group of organisms, the full significance of which just begins to be appreciated. The book begins with a review of general characteristics and classification of protozoa; takes up the morphology of the most important species, motions, nutrition, reproduction and evolution, and in the last two chapters makes a general survey of the two points probably of most interest to the class the book is intended for: development of protozoa and their rôle as parasites. The many illustrations in the first part of the book are really interesting and valuable.
