This volume represents a new venture of the Entomological Society of America. The purpose is for leading workers in each special area of entomology to provide objective summary reviews and appraisals of the current status of knowledge in their selected active fields of research. The 21 papers making up the volume will not be reviewed in detail. Papers of particular interest to readers of this journal are on insect nutrition, arthropod resistance to chemicals, the mode of action of insecticides, repellents, non-biting flies and disease, and veterinary and medical acarology.

As would be expected with 27 authors contributing 21 review articles, there is considerable variation in presentation and approach. However, in each contribution it is obvious that an exhaustive review and interpretation of the literature has been made, and the bibliographies are extensive. In most instances the authors felt it was essential to review the historical background of their subject area. It is anticipated that future reviews of the same subjects will be limited to a current period.
