The first edition of the Manual of Tropical Medicine was published during World War II under the auspices of the National Research Council to meet the needs of the armed forces in the tropics. The primary objective of the Manual was a concise presentation of the important aspects of the most significant tropical diseases. In the preparation of the second edition the authors have adhered to the fundamental objectives of the original volume. They have capitalized on the vast amount of data accumulated during the past ten years as a result of the stimulation to clinical and laboratory research imparted by the necessities and experiences of World War II. The second edition exceeds by more than 200 pages the length of the original Manual and in many fields there have been deletions and substitutions in the original text and many sections have been largely or entirely rewritten.
