The first edition of this book was reviewed shortly after its appearance in 1939 (J. A. M. A:114:1010 [March 16] 1940). It was regarded as a comprehensive description of the result of the author's experience in the tropics and his extensive practice in the Hospital for Tropical Diseases in London.
The second edition is much like the first. It is readable and has a fine bibliography. Medical officers and students will find it a particularly useful handbook, which gathers together current knowledge of the dysenteric disorders in a pleasant and instructive manner.
