This small book, an elaboration of a prize essay, while making no pretense to cover completely the malaria problem of India nevertheless gives a panorama of it that cannot elsewhere be found in a single brief volume. This is its chief value. But it is to be hoped that the book's reiteration of the thesis, propounded years ago by the Malaria Institute of India that India's malaria problem can, and ought to be, controlled, may serve to stimulate an all-out attack on malaria by Indian governments.

Malariologists, editors and scientists in general, can find much in text to which exception may be taken: The use of “micro” and “macro” as separate words associated with gametocytes (p. 12); and the use of “specie” as the singular of “species” (p. 38) are examples. On page 13 it is implied that quotidian fever is always due to infection with more than one species of parasite.
