This has many excellent features. It is timely because scabies always assumes greater importance in wartime. The book is rich in references and in illustrations. The historical facts are critically considered and presented in an interesting manner and all knowledge of the subject is brought down to date. Because of its limited scope, it will have particular value as a source book only for those interested in entomology; the general reader, however, will find it worthwhile reading just as were the author's companion books The Emperor's Itch and Scabies, Civil and Military.
