Several books of varying size and importance have been published recently, all dealing with tropical medicine. The author of this one terms it neither a textbook nor a handbook but rather an extended vocabulary of the language with which those who practice medicine in the tropics must be familiar.

He writes clearly and has managed to compress a large stock of information within a few pages. The book fits into one's pocket nicely. It will be useful to many readers. It deserves a cordial reception.
