This book is designed for the use of medical students and beginners in the field of parasitology. There has been an obvious attempt to exclude controversial topics, and the text is confined almost exclusively to diagnosis. In such a large field as parasitology, it is exceedingly difficult to produce a worth-while, condensed form. More colored plates would be desirable. All the illustrations are excellently reproduced, but, since there are no photographs, it will probably leave the beginner with a feeling of frustration because of his difficulty in detecting comparable forms. As a whole, the manual is satisfactorily written; the format is good; and the paper and binding are excellent. It will probably enjoy some popularity but only as an addition to a more comprehensive text.
