Since the appearance of the second edition of "Chatterjee," I have left a copy on the desk in the Clinical Parasitology Laboratories of the University of Chicago Clinics. It is an excellent reference work; its small size and profusion of generally excellent figures make it valuable for students studying "unknowns," as well as for quick reference by the technical and professional personnel. It is a highly practical book at the working level and contains a large amount of information on its relatively few pages. I would like to see the footnote on page 13 that relates to small race Entamoeba histolytica expanded and possibly incorporated in the text.
The book can be recommended essentially without reservation to anyone interested in parasitology of humans. It is perhaps of greater value in the temperate climates than in the tropics because of the generally lesser degree of familiarity with the practical aspects of
