This new edition of a standard textbook amply demonstrates the need for and the successful results of purposeful periodic book revision. The many new excellent illustrations closely approximate what one sees under a microscope; the numerous tables provide complete references to differential diagnosis (e. g., amebiasis versus shigellosis ); the omission of drugs no longer applicable saves much unnecessary reading; and the sections on immunological diagnosis and techniques of examination would warrant a place in the physician's library even if they were published separately. The style of writing is unusually clear and complete, and there are few wasted words in any of the chapters. For example, only eight and one-half pages of text and illustration are devoted to yellow fever, but nothing essential has been omitted. The discussion of the clinical implications and treatment of malaria, separated from the section discussing the mosquito, is as upto-date as the periodical literature. All
