The preparation of this book by three outstanding malariologists in the world sets forth the terminology used by malariologists in a very detailed manner, which should be accepted by all concerned. Unfortunately for this disease there have been so many different terms utilized by various authors and students of the disease that such a monograph is sorely needed. It is well done and authoritative and is recommended for any student of the disease.
