The publication of a fourth edition within two years of the third edition attests the deserved popularity of this authoritative textbook of medical parasitology. Text material has been revised and brought up to date and thirty-one illustrations have been added. Information concerning DDT and other wartime advances in disease prevention is included. However, the recommendations on the use of atabrine in the section on the treatment of malaria do not take full account of recent military experience with the drug. Summary tables of the diagnosis and treatment of parasitic infections are provided for the student. The completeness with which the subject is covered and the extensive bibliography also make the volume valuable for reference purposes.
