Chapters 1 and 2 deal with the current importance of coccidioidomycosis and its historical aspects, and an excellent chapter on the mycology of Coccidioides immitis follows. Chapter 4 deals with the geographical distribution of the organism. Chapters 5, 6, and 7 cover the epidemiology, immunology, and variations in susceptibility to coccidioidomycosis. The next chapter is on the pathology of the disease. Chapters 9 through 14 include its clinical aspects and what is known about treatment.

The monograph concludes with a comprehensive chronological bibliography of articles on coccidioidomycosis from 1892 through 1957. The illustrations are excellent and the tables are orderly and readable. This book
