Abstract

This 200-page book on malaria represents a masterly condensation of an extraordinarily complicated and important subject. It succeeds, without ever degenerating into mere synopsis, in covering in a clear, interesting and adequate way the parasite, the mosquito and the disease with its intricate epidemiology and the multiple aspects of its prevention and control. The many photographs and figures are excellent in themselves and well selected to illustrate all phases of the argument.

In order to achieve such conciseness the author had to make difficult decisions as to emphasis and omission. This reviewer would have given some account of the complexes of anopheline species which have caused so much confusion and which the geneticists are now elucidating with success.
