This book is by an outstanding, well known protozoologist, and factually it is especially useful. Unfortunately, there is no bibliography associated with the text or as a source of reference material at the end of the book, although the author has obviously drawn widely from the literature for his presentation. His sections on the amebas and the trypanosomes are especially well done, because for a long time the author has been closely affiliated with these fields. There is a short section on each of the parasites, dealing briefly with the clinical aspects and the course of the infections. Admittedly, the amount of clinical material would be inadequate for a clinician, but the author realizes this and so states in his introduction. This book is a valuable addition to the subject of medical protozoology.
