This little manual was written for the author's students as a guide to the identification and detection of the protozoan parasites of man. It is very brief and in the reviewers opinion, of limited value because of the brevity of the descriptions of the organisms considered. However, the author states that it is based upon his notes that were used in an “emergency course offered at the University” and perhaps one would be asking too much to expect a thorough consideration of the subject. The material that is presented is accurate and the volume would undoubtedly be of value to certain students during a course upon protozoology.

The reviewer regrets that Dr. Kudo has seen fit to adhere to the spelling “Entamoeba,” instead of “Endamoeba” in describing the amoebae occurring in man, especially in a book intended for American students. He is the only writer in this country, so far as the reviewer knows, who uses this spelling.
