This is divided into two parts. The first part deals with medical entomology and contains a classification and descriptions of the life histories of the insects concerned with disease transmission, together with chapters on the arachnida and the rodents. The second part describes the insect borne diseases under headings such as epidemiology, recognition of the disease and methods of control. While the chapters on medical entomology are quite complete, those on insect borne diseases could well have been expanded to the benefit of the reader.
