Abstract

This entertaining popular book on malaria is written by a physician unknown to contemporaneous malariologists, who is professionally, we understand, a cardiologist. The writer consequently cannot be expected to have had a great deal of personal familiarity with the many problems which this group of diseases affords, and the work is consequently a synthesis of the literature. To this circumstance, and unacquaintance with current trends, may be attributed such an exaggerated statement that there is now, in the United States, an annual average of 4,000,000 cases per year. While such a declaration would have had a certain validity a decade or more ago, its current reiteration sounds strange at this time when health authorities are using a fine toothed comb to discover bona fide cases of indigenous malaria, while because of this steady and rapid decline, the members of the National Malaria Society are seriously discussing the propriety of enlarging the scope of their interests to compensate for the diminished importance of malaria.
