This volume and its predecessor (Vol. I, 1951) provide a wealth of fundamental information concerning the mechanism of one-celled organisms, including both free-living and parasitic species. For biochemists and physiologists and evaluation of the contents probably should be prepared by a biochemist; for protozoölogists, by a comparative protozoölogist, and for workers in medical parasitology and tropical medicine, by one who is familiar with this area of knowledge.

First of all the reviewer is impressed with the choice of contributors, and secondly with the breadth and stature of volume II, based not only on a vast amount of new data which have accumulated during the short interval between publication of the two volumes but likewise on increasing ability to fit the information into certain patterns common to the Protozoa and other unicellular organisms. Much of the success which has been achieved is due to a wider coverage of subjects, and to new points of view.
