Abstract

A reviewer of any book should discover first of all the purpose of the author in placing his information on record, and should then proceed to discover if that objective has been fulfilled. In the Foreword by Professor John C. Torrey and in the Preface there are statements indicating that this volume is the outgrowth of experience in teaching second-year medical students in the department of public health and preventive medicine, Cornell University Medical College, New York City. In this institution the subject of medical parasitology is allotted ten sessions of three hours each, during which both laboratory and lecture methods of presentation are employed. The book contains not only the material which can be presented in the limited time available, but a substantial amount of collateral reading.

The volume is divided into four parts, namely, (1) Protozoa, (2) Parasitic Worms, (3) Anthropods and Disease Transmission, and (4) Poisonous and Venomous Forms, and is supplemented by nine chapters headed “Appendices,” a glossary, bibliography and subject index.
