The purposes of this little volume are (1) to provide students, preparing for degrees in tropical hygiene, and officers of the Royal Army Medical Corps, going up for their promotion tests, with a ready means of reviewing their reading before examination; and (2) to furnish young practitioners a vade mecum containing a summary of the main facts with which health officers in the tropics must be acquainted. It deals with the climate of the tropics, the effects of tropical residence, acclimatization, air and ventilation, water and water-supplies, food and feeding, clothing in the tropics, tropical shelter—including sites, soils and houses, disposal of refuse in the tropics, disposal of the dead, the propagation of tropical diseases by insects, arachnids and rats, the relation of animal parasites to disease in the tropics, the prevention of malaria, and disinfectants and disinfection.
