This digest of German contributions in the associated fields of tropical medicine and parasitology covers the period of the war years when much of German science was not available to the Allied Nations. The book is divided into four sections: I. General Tropical Hygiene, by Doctor Nauck, presently director of the Hamburg Tropical Institute; II. Parasitology, by Doctors Reichenow and Weyer; III. Tropical Diseases of Man, by Doctors Nauck, Reichenow, Vogel, Westphal and Weyer, and IV. Tropical Diseases of Domestic Animals, by Dr. Enigk.

In the first section there is a concise but comprehensive report on the German literature in the field of tropical medicine, including texts, handbooks and collected works, journals, and many research papers. There are brief chapters reviewing tropical medicine and hygiene in the war; colonical sanitary service; general observations on tropical diseases and their dissemination; living conditions, clothing and nutritional requirements in warm climates, and climatic hardships and acclimatization in the tropics.
