The appearance of the first edition of this comprehensive manual was indeed timely. During World War II a great many improvements were discovered and it is for this reason and the exhaustion of the first edition, that the revision was undertaken, as stated by the author. Indeed, the book contains much of historical interest as well as the more recent additions.

The order of sequence is the same as previously. In part I on the intestinal amoebae and flagellates, there are a number of additional notes on morphology and on cultivation, pointing up the research on bacteria-free cultivation and nutritional requirements and the need for further investigation along these lines.
