This is intended as a handbook for practical field and laboratory workers in regions where malaria is prevalent. The authors have modestly disclaimed originality and have expressed their indebtedness to Wenyon's Protozoology and other standard works. Some of the photographs reproduced are badly blurred in the printing and not likely to be very instructive (e. g., figure 39). Many quite elementary topics are discussed, such as the use of the iris diaphragm, and the fine adjustment. While distinctly limited in its scope and appeal, the book will undoubtedly serve a useful purpose. It is obviously based on first-hand personal experience and contains some direct observations of real value to the malaria worker.
