The prompt demand for the third edition of this widely useful clinical treatment of human parasitology is an index of its desirability and utility in these wartimes. Our military and naval forces face ecologic and climatic conditions exposing them to bodily invasion by parasites, especially in the tropics and in the multiplied personal contacts due to the exigencies of war. The return of convalescents and discharged veterans to civilian life at the close of the war will bring added hazards to this country, as in the case of the last war, because of carriers who may establish new centers of infection, especially of malaria and the dysenteries. This edition has been revised, expanded and brought up to date by a thoroughgoing revision of the text, especially in the fields of epidemiology and clinical medicine, and in the subject of arthropod vectors of disease. Forty new illustrations, four full page color
