The authors, in this revision, have effectively incorporated the newer concepts in the field of pathogenic microbiology. They present many topics of a wide range of interest, which is made possible only by the concise but pleasantly readable style; numerous well chosen references indicate direction for further study. On the other hand, material is selected, as problems of general biologic interest are only briefly discussed or are omitted. The action of the infectious agent is frequently correlated with the pathologic process in the host, and laboratory procedures and methods of bacterial identification are well described. The illustrations leave little to be desired in presenting microscopic forms both in culture and in pathologic material. The book is admirably suited for a textbook for the student in pathogenic bacteriology and parasitology, and its few faults are attributable to brevity.
