With great numbers of the armed forces in tropical and semitropical areas and many chances to contract tropical diseases, it is important that the practitioner should be informed of the present status of one of the most important of these diseases. Dr. Bispham has done this by presenting the picture of malaria so that the practitioner will have a thorough, practical knowledge of the disease. The author's complete description in the chapters on pathology, symptomatology and treatment give a picture of the disease of its most recent advances up to the present time. Dr. Bispham has made use of the leading authorities to review many sections of the book and has also included an interesting chapter on the prevention and treatment of malaria in West Africa in recent years by Comdr. L. T. Coggeshall (MC), U.S.N.R. The volume is highly recommended to students, malariologists and practitioners.
