"A parasite is an organism which has a host," and the author discusses such relationships from viruses to vertebrates. He is at his best in discussing his own field of the Metazoa, and numerous illustrations are included showing life cycles. The book is written for students without previous knowledge of parasitology, but it is sufficiently complete and well illustrated for use by the epidemiologist and public health worker.
