One reads successive editions of Craig and Faust's “Clinical Parasitology” with increasing respect for its authority. Unfailing in reliability, profound in scholarship, exact and painstaking in detail, the book is a monument to the scientific attainments of the authors and to their creative energy.

The new edition has been expanded by more than one hundred pages but the use of lighter paper has permitted this increase in material without increase in bulk. Twenty-one new figures have been added. As in the previous edition, the book is divided into six parts which, following a general introduction, deal in turn with protozoa and protozoan infections, helminths and helminthic infections, arthropods and human disease, technical procedures and references. A new chapter on the geographic distribution of parasitic infections appears in the general introduction. Much fresh material and new sections on pathogenesis are found in the accounts of the various parasitic and arthropod-transmitted diseases.
